  PRIMARY KEY (`userID`)
)

 

MySQLi Procedural Example

 <?php
$db_server ="localhost";
$db_user = "root";
$db_pass = "";
$db_name ="demodb";

// Create connection
$conn = mysqli_connect($db_server, $db_user, $db_pass, $db_name);

// Check connection
if($conn===false)
{
	die("Could not connect::". mysqli_connect_error());
}

$sql = "INSERT INTO tbl_users(userName,userEmail) VALUES('vikash','vikash@phpcluster.com')";

if(mysqli_query($conn, $sql))
{
	echo "Records added successfully";
}
else
{
	echo "error" .mysqli_error($conn);
}

mysqli_close($conn);
 
 ?>

 

MySQLi Object Oriented Example

<?php
$db_server ="localhost";
$db_user = "root";
$db_pass = "";
$db_name ="demodb";

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($db_server, $db_user, $db_pass, $db_name);

//check connection
if($conn-> connect_error)
{
	die("Could not connect:". $conn->connect_error);
}
	
	$sql = "INSERT INTO tbl_users(userName,userEmail) VALUES('vikash','vikash@phpcluster.com')";
	
	if($conn->query($sql)===true)
	{
		echo "Records added succesfully";
	}
	else
	{
		echo "error" .$conn->error;
	}
