For this project we needed to create 2 databases on the PHPMyAdmin server. One was needed to record usernames and passwords and the second was to record the data from the profiles.

This is the database for the usernames and passwords:

This was the structure for that database:

The second database was slightly more confusing. We had to remember to make an ID row and name all of the elements appropriately so we could accurately link this table to the form we will create using PHP. This is the second table:

To add this to our code we needed to create a connect.php file and link this PHPMyAdmin database to our code. This is what it looks like:

Below is the code from the signup.php and is where we linked our PHPMyAdmin to the code and created the form where the user would be able to submit their information and then it would save on the PHPMyAdmin and then would be echoed out on the homepage as a profile.

<?php require_once("../includes/session.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../includes/connect.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../includes/functions.php"); ?>
<?php include_once("../includes/templates/header.php"); ?>

<a name="formlogin"></a>
<a name="formsignup"></a>


    if(isset($_POST["post"])) {
        $fullname = ucfirst($_POST["full_name"]);
        $email = ucfirst($_POST["email"]);
        $age = ucfirst($_POST["age"]);
        $gender = ucfirst($_POST["gender"]);
        $personalprofile = ucfirst($_POST["bio"]);
        $location = ucfirst($_POST["location"]);
        $user_id = $_SESSION["user_id"];
        //$photoupload = ucfirst($_POST["photo_upload"]);
        //$cvupload = ucfirst($_POST["cv_upload"]);

        $query = "INSERT INTO newpost (user_id, full_name, email, age,
 gender, bio, location) VALUES ('{$_SESSION['user_id']}', 
'{$fullname}', '{$email}', '{$age}', '{$gender}', '{$personalprofile}',
        $result = mysqli_query($connection, $query);

        if($result) {
            $_SESSION["message"] = "Post successful";
        } else {
            $_SESSION["message"] = "Something went wrong!";
    } else 

            $fullname = "";
            $email = "";
            $age = "";
            $gender = "";
            $personalprofile = "";
            $location = "";
            //$photoupload = "";
            //$cvupload = "";

The signup would mean that a user could sign in and if the data was different to what was on the PHPMyAdmin then it would not log them in.Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 16.43.08
