1. This sql code gives me a list of unique ip addresses

SELECT DISTINCT (`ip`) FROM  `log` WHERE `ip` NOT IN (SELECT `ip` FROM ip);

Open in new window


2. This sql code inserts an ip address into a table.

INSERT IGNORE INTO `ip` (`ip`) VALUES ("24.24.24.24");

Open in new window


3. How can I modify this code so that it inserts all of the unique ip addresses from (1) into the ip table?

INSERT IGNORE INTO `ip` (`ip`) VALUES (SELECT DISTINCT (`ip`) FROM  `log` WHERE `ip` NOT IN (SELECT `ip` FROM ip));

Open in new window

I should point out that the ip table has 10+ fields and one of them is called ip.

The log table has 10+ fields and also has a field called ip.

you would use the keyword VALUES only if you have static values like your query 2. but if the values are coming from another query u need to remove the VALUES keyword. So it ll be

INSERT IGNORE INTO `ip`(`ip`) (SELECT DISTINCT (`ip`) FROM `log` WHERE `ip` NOT IN (SELECT `ip` FROM `ip`))
