PHP, MySQL and images - Page 3

At this stage we don't need to worry about loading data into the table, we will do that next using PHP and simple HTML forms. You can shut down Telnet now and open up your favorite HTML editor, I would recommend Homesite 4.0.
Now it was time for me to learn the PHP basics, which wasn't that difficult, then I subscribed to the PHP mailing list and took a quick look through the PHP manual. If you can try to find somebody on ICQ that knows PHP, it sure does help having instant support.
The idea here is to be able to insert all the data into the database via the internet using forms, I have created forms several times before so that was no problem at all. I am assuming that you have used forms before, if you have no idea how to create forms, find a tutorial on the net and come back when your ready.
Create a page and call it add_data.php3, and then cut and paste the following.
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post"  action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF ?>">
<input type="Text" name="year" size="25">
<input type="Text" name="make" size="25">
<input type="Text" name="model" size="25">
<input type="Text" name="price" size="25">
<input type="File" name="picture" size="25">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Upload">
First of all we need to add a little PHP in the action attribute, this is used to display all the data once the submit button is pressed.
action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF ?>"
The name attribute within the input element will be used to pass the information to PHP, these names should be the same as the columns in the database.
