  1. In Topic: What are you working on today?

    Posted 22 Jul 2015

    I'm working on a complete rewrite of a grade tracking system (mostly used in the FE sector), that was developed by myself and another person over the course of a few years. It became an unwieldy mess, so I've started the whole thing again from the beginning, to try and make it much easier to manage and update.

    Firstly you should not use the mysqli or the mysql functions, they are old and not very secure at all.

    You should be use Prepared Data Objects (PDO): http://code.tutsplus...cess--net-12059


    However, the reason that specific code you posted isn't working is I imagine because you do not have single quotes around the variables in your query. E.g.
    VALUES('$bizname', '$address', '$lat', '$long', '$type')

    If in doubt with an SQL error, print out the SQL it is trying to run and run it in MySQL Workbench or PHPMyAdmin, or whatever tool you want.


    $str = "INSERT INTO markers (name, address, lat, lng, type) VALUES($bizname, $address, $lat, $long, $type)";
    echo $str;

    Still though, that's a insecure way to do it, and you really should look into that PDO link I gave you.

    The data is defintely not in the database, nor has it ever been according to the various logs, backups, etc...

    If there is a bug then it's at the point at which the data is being saved, however on several occasions I've been told that they have checked after saving it and the data defintely had saved, but then when I check the backups and logs, it's nowhere to be found.
