How to Create a Search Feature with PHP and MySQL


In this video I have shown how we can create a simple PHP search feature with MySQL as back end.
This is the continuation of my previous project PHP MySQL CRUD Application.

1. The database connectivity.

The database connectivity is obtained by creating simple db_config.php page where the connection parameters are defined. Where ever we need connection we can call db_config.php by using keyword require_once();

2. Search Form

In this project we have created a simple form in index.php to submit the search value into search.php.

3. Search with like query in search.php

Once the index.php submits the search value into the search.php. It is used to create a query to search in the name field and address field.

After running the project in server. The output is shown below.
Index.php

Search.php
