Default PHP MySQL Update

The UPDATE statement is used to modify data in a table.
Update Data In a Database

The UPDATE statement is used to update existing records in a table.

UPDATE table_name
SET column1=value, column2=value2,...
WHERE some_column=some_value
Note: Notice the WHERE clause in the UPDATE syntax. The WHERE clause specifies which record or records that should be updated. If you omit the WHERE clause, all records will be updated!

To get PHP to execute the statement above we must use the mysql_query() function. This function is used to send a query or command to a MySQL connection.

Earlier in the tutorial we created a table named "Persons". Here is how it looks:

FirstName LastName Age Peter Griffin 35 Glenn Quagmire 33

The following example updates some data in the "Persons" table:

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","peter","abc123");
if (!$con)
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
} mysql_select_db("my_db", $con);

mysql_query("UPDATE Persons SET Age = '36'
WHERE FirstName = 'Peter' AND LastName = 'Griffin'"); mysql_close($con);

After the update, the "Persons" table will look like this:

FirstName LastName Age Peter Griffin 36 Glenn Quagmire 33
