How can I display MySQL query results with the fields vertical instead of horizontal?

I have a MySQL Table with many fields that will not fit on my page when I display query results in a browser, I need to flip the table so that the Fields are displayed in the vertical axis instead of the horizontal.

Google is no use, and I've search through the archive here and can't find a solution.

My query and my Table code is posted below.

Thanks in advance for your help!
$maxRows_hostdetail = 10;
$pageNum_hostdetail = 0;
if (isset($_GET['pageNum_hostdetail'])) {
  $pageNum_hostdetail = $_GET['pageNum_hostdetail'];
}
$startRow_hostdetail = $pageNum_hostdetail * $maxRows_hostdetail;
 
mysql_select_db($database_webhosting, $webhosting);
$query_hostdetail = "SELECT `Host`, Package, Storage, `Data Transfer`, Bandwidth, `Email Accounts`, `IP Addresses`, `Included Domains`, `Sub Domains`, `Hostable Domains`, `FTP Accounts`, `Domain Price`, `MySQL Databases`, `Shared SSL`, `Dedicated SSL`, UpTime, `Money Back Guarantee`, Support, Setup, Price FROM hostfeatures";
$query_limit_hostdetail = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_hostdetail, $startRow_hostdetail, $maxRows_hostdetail);
$hostdetail = mysql_query($query_limit_hostdetail, $webhosting) or die(mysql_error());
$row_hostdetail = mysql_fetch_assoc($hostdetail);
 
if (isset($_GET['totalRows_hostdetail'])) {
  $totalRows_hostdetail = $_GET['totalRows_hostdetail'];
} else {
  $all_hostdetail = mysql_query($query_hostdetail);
  $totalRows_hostdetail = mysql_num_rows($all_hostdetail);
}
$totalPages_hostdetail = ceil($totalRows_hostdetail/$maxRows_hostdetail)-1;

You can do it in several ways, you could load the result set into an array, transpose the array and iterate through the new array and print it out.

Or you could use a nested table to display the results, but i'd think the above option is faster. I found this transpose function online: http://www.weberdev.com/get_example-4718.html

Here is how you could transpose the array:

<?php
$maxRows_hostdetail = 10;
$pageNum_hostdetail = 0;
if (isset($_GET['pageNum_hostdetail'])) {
  $pageNum_hostdetail = $_GET['pageNum_hostdetail'];
}
$startRow_hostdetail = $pageNum_hostdetail * $maxRows_hostdetail;
 
mysql_select_db($database_webhosting, $webhosting);
$query_hostdetail = "SELECT `Host`, Package, Storage, `Data Transfer`, Bandwidth, `Email Accounts`, `IP Addresses`, `Included Domains`, `Sub Domains`, `Hostable Domains`, `FTP Accounts`, `Domain Price`, `MySQL Databases`, `Shared SSL`, `Dedicated SSL`, UpTime, `Money Back Guarantee`, Support, Setup, Price FROM hostfeatures";
$query_limit_hostdetail = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_hostdetail, $startRow_hostdetail, $maxRows_hostdetail);
$hostdetail = mysql_query($query_limit_hostdetail, $webhosting) or die(mysql_error());
$row_hostdetail = mysql_fetch_assoc($hostdetail);
 
if (isset($_GET['totalRows_hostdetail'])) {
  $totalRows_hostdetail = $_GET['totalRows_hostdetail'];
} else {
  $all_hostdetail = mysql_query($query_hostdetail);
  $totalRows_hostdetail = mysql_num_rows($all_hostdetail);
}
$totalPages_hostdetail = ceil($totalRows_hostdetail/$maxRows_hostdetail)-1;
 
$values = array();
while ($row_hostdetail = mysql_fetch_assoc($hostdetail)) {
    if ( ! $values) {
        foreach ($row_hostdetail as $key => $value) $values[$key] = array($value);
    } else {
        foreach ($row_hostdetail as $key => $value) $values[$key][] = $value;
    }    
}
?> 
 
<table width="1000" border="0" align="center">
 
<?php
 
foreach ($values as $label => $row) {
    echo "<tr><th>$label</th>";
    foreach ($row as $value) echo "<td>$value</td>";
    echo '</tr>';
}
 
?>

You're welcome.

I'd recommend you modify the solution I suggested you in order to avoid any problem with HTML special characters/tags. You should escape any variable you pass to HTML, for instance using htmlentities():
<?php
 
foreach ($values as $label => $row) {
    echo '<tr><th>' . htmlentities($label) . '</th>';
    foreach ($row as $value) echo '<td>' . htmlentities($value) . '</td>';
    echo '</tr>';
}
 
?>
