I am trying to log in using the username and password I signed up with but I just keep getting my "no user found" message so it clearly isn't working but I don't know why.

$password = $link->real_escape_string($_POST['password']);
		$email = $link->real_escape_string($_POST['email']);
		$sql = "SELECT password, userID FROM `users` WHERE email = '$email' LIMIT 1";
		$result = $link->query($sql);
		if ($result->num_rows == 1) {
		$row = $result->fetch_assoc();
		$db_password = $row["password"];
		if(password_verify($password, $db_password)) {
			echo "correct";
			} else {
			echo "no user found";

I used this to create my password on my register page:

$password = trim(password_hash($password, PASSWORD_BCRYPT, [12]));
