Hi,

Im starting to convert my existing PHP scripts to the mysqli library.

Could someone please have a look at the PHP code below and suggest how to migrate it to use the new mysqli library.

Thank you.

<html>
<head>
<title>Add New Record in MySQL Database</title>
</head>
<body>
<p>Add New Record to a MySQL Database</p>
<?php
if(isset($_POST['add']))
{
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpass = 'letmein';
$conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass);
if(! $conn )
{
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}

if(! get_magic_quotes_gpc() )
{
   $emp_name = addslashes ($_POST['emp_name']);
   $emp_address = addslashes ($_POST['emp_address']);
}
else
{
   $emp_name = $_POST['emp_name'];
   $emp_address = $_POST['emp_address'];
}
$emp_salary = $_POST['emp_salary'];

$sql = "INSERT INTO employee ".
       "(emp_name,emp_address, emp_salary, join_date) ".
       "VALUES('$emp_name','$emp_address',$emp_salary, NOW())";
mysql_select_db('test_db');
$retval = mysql_query( $sql, $conn );
if(! $retval )
{
  die('Could not enter data: ' . mysql_error());
}
echo "Entered data successfully\n";
mysql_close($conn);
}
else
{
?>
<form method="post" action="<?php $_PHP_SELF ?>">
<table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2">

We have an article here at E-E that maps the familiar but obsolete MySQL code to the currently supported MySQL extensions.  Please read it over and let me know if you still have any questions.

Also, you might want to reconsider that code that involves "magic quotes."  We don't use addslashes() any more - just the relevant escape functions.
