Little problem with form insertion in MySQL, Please help!!!

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin


I'm a little bit new with php and I have a little issue here. I created a webform to insert some infos into a MySQL database. The weird thing is that some of the infos is correctly inserted and some not? I doubled checked my code and can't find what it is since it's a pretty simple code. If anyone can help, it would be really appreciated!

Here the form code :

Code: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="fr">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
<link href="../../css/style1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<br /><br />
<b>Ajout d'un Artiste L.V.A</b>

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="processes/insert_artist.php" method="POST" target="main2">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="4" width="550">
<td width="275">Nom de l'artiste : </td>
<td width="225"><input type="text" name="artist" class="login" style="width: 250px"></td>
<td>Label : </td>
<td><input type="text" name="label" class="login" value="L.V.A ENTERTAINMENT" style="width: 250px"></td>
<td>Site Web : </td>
<td><input type="text" name="website" class="login" style="width: 250px"></td>
<td>Albums : </td>
<td><input type="text" name="albums" class="login" style="width: 250px"></td>
<td>Photo 1 :</td>
<td><input type="file" name="uploadedfile" class="login" style="width: 250px"></td>
<td colspan="2">Biographie :</td>
<td colspan="2"><textarea style="width: 550px" rows="15" class="login" name="bio"></textarea></td>
<td colspan="2" height="40" align="right" valign="bottom"><input type="submit" value="Enregsitrer" class="login"></td>

And now here's the PHP code :
$target_path = "../artists photo/";

$target_path = $target_path . basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']);

$picture = basename( $_FILES['uploadedfile']['name']);

if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['uploadedfile']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
echo "<center><br /><br />votre photo $picture a été correctement enregistré</center>
} else{
echo "<center><br /><br />Il y a eu un problème avec l'instertion de votre photo</center>
$con = mysql_connect("server","user","pass");

$artist = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['artist']);
$label = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['label']);
$website = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['website']);
$albums = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['albums']);
$photo = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['uploadedfile']);
$bio = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['bio']);

if (!$con)
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}mysql_select_db("a1808796_data", $con);$sql="INSERT INTO artists ( artist, label, website, albums, photo, bio)
('$artist','$label','website','$albums','$photo','$bio')";if (!mysql_query($sql,$con))
die('Error: ' . mysql_error());

echo "<br /><br /><center>Votre artiste a correctement été ajouté à la base de donnée.<br /><br /><a href="panel.php" target="main2">Retour au paneau de contrôle</a></center>";

As you can see I have artist, label, website, albums, photo, bio

the artist, label, albums and bio insterts correctly

"website" always inster "website" instead of the value posted in the form

the uploaded file (wich is a picture file) uploads correctly but the value ($photo) is not inserted into the DB....

If anyone sees the problem please help!!!!!
