Php - Contact Form To Download File And Save Info In Database?

Aug 24, 2012

To keep it simple this is what im trying to acheive.

user fills in the form
fields are validated if filled properly
when form submitted, check for all validation, if not then show error, if yes
email form details to my email
store same details into mysql database
show thank you message
download pdf file from within the folder

I've managed to do all of that but im facing one issue. when user click on download button without filling anything, they get an error but an empty row is added to the database. If they fill incorrect form they still see an error, but now there are 2 rows in the database. AND if they fill everything correctly, they see thanks you message and also get to download the file but it still add 2 rows in the table.

here is code for index.html

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "[URL]">
<html xmlns="[URL]">



Download File Using Php Form?

Apr 10, 2013

Im just at the end of developing a prototype that allows users to select some options via dynamic dropdowns and then upload a small file to mysql. I have just completed the search function that works fine and returns the results correctly. Whats had me stuck for the last few days is allowing a user to download one of the files returned in the search result.

Ive put the results into a html table and used a form for a download option, this is where I suspect the problem lies with the form because when I have messed around the file download works but when a user hits search on the previous page. My reading has got me this far and I have viewed some questions but none seem to do the trick.

Here is the script for results_page.php

if (isset ($resultts) and ($tests))
$sql = "SELECT p.logID, p.fileData, p.fileName, p.mimeType, p.dateCreated, t.testName, r.resultType
FROM result AS r
INNER JOIN product_logs AS p

Contact Form With Contents Stored On Database?

May 1, 2012

I want to create a form with the contents stored on a database. I've got so far but now I'm totally stuck. At the moment when I click send the connection seems to work because i get the message "Connected to MySQL" when I click submit, but my table 'warranty_reg' is not been updated and I'm not getting the message "Thank you, your warranty has been registered." I'm not sure if I have inserted my table right in my database, i have tried a totally blank table and adding the fields manually eg. name, address etc. 

my code below but I feel it all might be relevant, is there a problem with the code or am i doing something wrong at the database end?

Php - Validate Email Field Against Database To Prevent Duplicates In Contact Form

Feb 22, 2013

I have a contact form on my site, I want to prevent users with the same email from contacting more than once.

On the mySQL database that stores the data I made the stored procedure

CREATE PROCEDURE find_email(emailaddr VARCHAR(60))
DECLARE form_email VARCHAR(60);


If I change my code and manually set $res to be 0, the form works like it's supposed to. Otherwise nothing happens when I click the submit button.

Php - Upload File To Server But File Name Does Not Save To Database

Dec 26, 2012

The file name is not being saved into the database. Files are being uploaded to the server just fine, yet the file name will not save at all. I can echo the file name once the file is uploaded successfully but it does want to save the filename to the database for whatever reason.


<form action="" name="loa" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="hidden" name="size" value="350000">
<input type="file" name="loa">
<input type="submit" name="loasub" value="Upload Letter of Authorization">


if (!empty($_POST['loasub'])) {
$target = "loa/";
$target = $target . basename( $_FILES['loa']['name']);
$theloa = ($_FILES['loa']['name']);

PHP - Save To Serialized Info With Quotes

Nov 24, 2012

Trying to save serialized string to SQL, but then i am having problems with unserializing it because of quotes.Example, string is "te'st", after serialize we have s:5:"te'st"; But to save it to SQL we need to add slashes, and i am doing serialize(addslashes($string)) after this, in our MySQL db we have s:6:"te'st";

And this is the problem. s:6 means we have 6 symbols string, but our "te'st" is only 5, so when we trying to unserialize it, we getting error. Tried htmlspecialchars and mysql_real_escape_string ...How i use mysql_real_escape_string

mysql_query("INSERT INTO `table`(`string`) VALUES ('" . serialize(array('iId' =>$aSqlResult['typeID'], 'sName' => mysql_real_escape_string($sScanResultLine))) . "')");

File Download From Server Using PHP?

Jan 26, 2013

I have created a PHP page that allows users to download a file when they click the this link:

<a href="download_pdf.php?pubid=<?php echo $row_rsPublications['pubID']; ?>&file=<?php echo $row_rsPublications['file']; ?>">Download File</a>

I have also created the download page that the link directs to:

if(isset($_GET['file'])) {
$fileID = $_GET['pubid'];
$filename= ($_GET['file']);
$path = "admin/pubfiles/";


Now my problem is, when the download popup window come up, it reads that the file is of 0 bytes. And when downloaded, it can't open. i get the message that it is not a supported file type or its been damaged or corrupted.

i have been looking into this all day and stuck. I have a basic PHP script which updates a table. with details passed to it and then downloads the file from the upload directory.

$user = isset($_GET['use'])? $_GET['use'] : null;
$route = isset($_GET['rou'])? $_GET['rou'] : null;
$expires = isset($_GET['exp'])? $_GET['exp'] : null;
$itemnu = isset($_GET['item'])? $_GET['item'] : null;
[Code] ........

What i need to do now is redirect back to homepage. However you i understand you can't redirect after a download with PHP, and if i redirect before it doesn't work. i have tried

fopen and file_get_contents

but as the files will be a varity of microsoft, text and pdf i couldn't get it to work. i also tried (removed as part of edit...I have looked a javascript and can't work how to download a file using a php Variable. There is no requirment for a php script, it can be anything that works. This is the upload file

$target = "../upload/";
$target = $target . str_replace(" ","_",( $_FILES['file']['name']));

Php - Using The Browser Prompt To Download A File?

Jul 3, 2012

I have a php/mysql site in which I am trying to download a comma delimited file (CSV). The csv file I create contains comma delimited data (name, address, city, state). I create the csv file ok and place it in the site's /downloads directory. So far so good. I have been looking on line and the code to trigger the browser's download prompt that I see the most often is:

$exportfile = "emailclientaddresses.csv";
$fullpath = "downloads/" . $exportfile;
header("Content-type: text/plain");
header("Content-Length: ".filesize($exportfile));
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=" . $fullpath);

The $exportfile is the csv file that my code created. It's ok. What this does is:

The $fullpath is displayed in the browser download prompt in a very weird format: download_emailclientaddresses.csv When it does download, the current webpage is downloaded or a combination of the csv file and the current web page.OK, I have tried a lot of things and nothing has worked.

How To Save HTML File In Database Using Java Database Connectivity

Jan 17, 2013

I have html file as String and I want to insert it into MySQL DB, using update query. I tried this:

Statement st = connection.createStatement();
String query = "UPDATE orders SET status='ready', html='"+html+"' WHERE id='123'";
int num = st.executeUpdate(query);

But I get following exception:

MySQLSyntaxErrorException: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'zglosBladWindow').ck_window.showCenter('this');" href="#">zg?o? b??d na stronie<' at line 1

This is somwhere inside HTML - probably I cant just quote html with "" and insert it as it contains many special characters and quotes also - so how I can insert it? Should I encode it somehow?
