I want to find a username in the table of mysql, I already have the code written in PHP to do that correctly, but how do I extract the id of that username and insert into a variable $id so I can use it inside the code. Pleass view my code. Thank you.
$sql = "SELECT FROM * $table_name WHERE username = '$_GET[username]";
$result = @mysql_query($sql, $connection) or die(mysql_error());
$num = mysql_num_rows($result);
if ($num != 0) 
$storeuserid = ;
