Looking for a quick  example on how make a php to mysql (true / false) compare.

This would be using a sign up form:

So all the basic stuff I have down (login/sql/query/etc..)



I am guessing....example code ;)
 

// old or new user example //
 

function oldOrNew (signupID)
 

{

    login into db;

    login into myTable ;

	//compare the id against the table//
 

	if(userid on myTable == signupID & oldPassword on myTable == newPassword)

	{

		echo "you already have signed up...but you have uninstalled the application"
 

		echo "please fill out form about what we could have done to make it a better app, and thanks for coming back!"
 

	}   
 

	else

	{

		echo "thanks for signing up"

		doSomeFunction();

    }
 
 
 
 

}
 

// 11223 would be the example var ID to pass to the function //
 

oldOrNew(11223);

<?php

//returns true if user already signed up

//false otherwise

function oldOrNew ($signupID,$newPassword) 

{

	mysql_connect("localhost","username","password") or die(mysql_error());

	mysql_select_db("dbname") or die(mysql_error());

	$rs = mysql_query("SELECT 1 signedUp FROM tableName WHERE tableName.id=$signupID and tableName.password = '$newPassword'") or die(mysql_error());

	if( mysql_num_rows($rs) > 0 )

	{

		echo "you already have signed up...but you have uninstalled the application"

		echo "please fill out form about what we could have done to make it a better app, and thanks for coming back!"

	} 

	else

	{

		echo "thanks for signing up"

		doSomeFunction();

    }

return (mysql_num_rows($rs) > 0);

}

 ?>

I think the easiest way to find out if a user had already signed up would be to select the user's id out of the data table.  If there are no rows, you have not got a user with that id.

HTH, ~Ray
if (!$r = mysql_query("SELECT uid FROM users WHERE ukey = 11223 LIMIT 1")) { die(mysql_error()); }
 

// IF MYSQL NUM ROWS IS ZERO, IT IS THE SAME AS FALSE; IF ONE IT IS TRUE

if (mysql_num_rows($r)) {

   echo "Already signed up";

} else {

   echo "Not signed up yet";

}
