PHP MYSQL - post to database

Hello googlers
On todays post mi gonna tell you how to post to mysql database.

First of all we must make the html form for index.html:
<html>
<body>
<form action="index.php" method="get">
<input type="text" name="user">
<input type="submit" value="post">
</form>
</body>
</html>
This html script will post form data to index.php, for example we write "Mikel" on the box and clock post button, the url will change to index.php?user=mikel

Now the php part, index.php:
<?php
// we get submitted data and check if user really submitted it
if(isset($_GET['user']){
$user = $_GET['user'];

// make an mysql connection, make sure to edit this
mysql_connect("host", "user", "password"); // host = host name, user = database user, password = database password
mysql_select_db("database"); // database = mysql database name

// escape input from dangerous charachters
$user = htmlentities(mysql_real_escape_string($user));
}
else{
// else print "you have not submitted anything
die("You have not submitted anything.");
}
?>

Ok we are done with html and php part, now go to mysql: localhost/phpmyadmin if you are on localhost, go to your database and create a table named users with 2 fields:
And click go.

And click save.
Now lets move back to index.php
After $user = htmlentities(mysql_real_escape_string($user)); create a new line and add:
mysql_query("INSERT INTO users(name) VALUES('$user');
echo "Submitted.";

Thats it! Whole script of index.php should look:

<?php
// we get submitted data and check if user really submitted it
if(isset($_GET['user']){
$user = $_GET['user'];

// make an mysql connection, make sure to edit this
mysql_connect("host", "user", "password"); // host = host name, user = database user, password = database password
mysql_select_db("database"); // database = mysql database name

// escape input from dangerous charachters
$user = htmlentities(mysql_real_escape_string($user));

mysql_query("INSERT INTO users(name) VALUES('$user');
echo "Submitted."; 

}
else{
// else print "you have not submitted anything
die("You have not submitted anything.");
}
?>
