Hi Experts:

Could you please help me with displaying the images stored in the database table on a webpage.  I have a database table with 8 columns as shown in the picture below.  Sometimes each row may have more than 1 image in it.  I checked the FileManager in the webhosting account and could not find the images I uploaded in the database.

Here is the code I have currently.  we need to add a code to display the images from the database for each row.


<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
?>
<!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
      <meta charset="UTF-8">
      <title>database connections</title>
    </head>
    <body>
	
<?php 
$mysqli = new mysqli('hostname', 'username', 'password', 'properties');
		
if ($mysqli->connect_error) {
	die('Connect Error (' . $mysqli->connect_errno . ') '
		. $mysqli->connect_error);
}
	  
echo 'Connected successfully'; 
     
// RETRIEVE THE type PARAMETER MAKING ALLOWANCES FOR
// THE CASE WHERE IT IS NOT PRESENT
$type = isset($_GET['type']) ? $_GET['type'] : '';

// SANITIZE THE INPUT - PREVENT SQL INJETION
// ATTACKS
$type = $mysqli->real_escape_string($type);

// CREATE THE QUERY
$query = "SELECT * FROM residences";

// IF WE HAVE A TYPE THEN FILTER ON IT OTHERWISE
// DEFAULT TO FULL TABLE
if (!empty($type)) {
  $query .= "  WHERE `type`='{$type}'";
}

// RUN THE QUERY
$result = $mysqli->query($query);
?>
<a href="residences.php?type=Residential">Residential</a>
<a href="commercial.php?type=Commercial">Commercial</a>
<a href="mypage.php?type=C">Type C</a>
      <table border="2" style= "background-color: #84ed86; color: #761a9b; margin: 0 auto;" >
      <thead>
        <tr>
          <th>Id</th>
          <th>Name</th>
          <th>Description</th>
          <th>Type</th>
          <th>Images</th>
        </tr>
      </thead>
      <tbody>
        <?php
          while( $row = $result->fetch_assoc() ){
            echo
            "<tr>
              <td>{$row['id']}</td>
              <td>{$row['title']}</td>
	      <td>{$row['description']}</td>
	      <td>{$row['type']}</td>
            </tr>\n";
          }
        ?>
      </tbody>
    </table>
<?php $mysqli->close(); ?>
    </body>
    </html>

You may need to create a php script that can be referenced as the source of info in the <Img src=Http://www.yourdomain.com/renderimage.php?reference=imageidentifier for query_string
Or you can append the info as a path renderingimage.php/sone/reference/identifier
Prior to outputting the data stream, make sure you out the data type content: image/....

How does the image stored? Might it be by reference to the file in the filesystem.
