Lets start with the topic of discussion regarding : How to fetch image from database in php

Before start with the discussion regarding fetching of image.

First create table name called image in the database.

Below is the SQL query execute in phpmyadmin so table is created.

---- Table structure for table `image`--CREATE TABLE `image` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL, `title` varchar(500) NOT NULL, `imagename` text NOT NULL, `type` varchar(500) NOT NULL, `time` datetime NOT NULL) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4;

Now create the configuration file to configure database connection file name config.php

<?php /* database configuaration */ define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); define('DB_USERNAME', 'root'); define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); define('DB_DATABASE', 'phptutorial'); $con = mysqli_connect(DB_SERVER,DB_USERNAME,DB_PASSWORD,DB_DATABASE); // Check connectionif (mysqli_connect_errno()) { echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_errno(); exit();}?>

After the creation of a configuration file for database connection

The next step is to insert the image into the database.

To achieve the inserting of image into database we have to upload image.

To upload image, create form consisting with input field.

Below is the php script from which you come to know how the image file is uploaded.

<?php include("config.php");?><!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>How to fetch image from database in php</title></head><body><div style="background-color:rgba(100,200,255,0.5);" align="center"> <form action="uploading.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <h2>Image Uploading Section | <a href="show.php" >Veiw All Image</a></h2><br><br> <table> <tr><td height="70" width="100">Title</td><td><input type="text" autocomplete="off" required="required" name="ntitle" class="resizedTextbox"><br><br></td></tr> <tr><td height="70" width="100">Type</td><td><select name="ntype" id="ntype"><option vlalue="Banner">Banner</option><option vlalue="Logo">Logo</option></select><br><br></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2"><input type="file" class="cck" name="sfile" id="fileName" accept="image/*"><br><br></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2"><input class="cck" type="submit" name="notification" value="Upload"/></td></tr> </table></form></div></body></html>

Output of above code is as follow as:

As you can see the declaration of form with action calling file uploading.php.

In that file there php script for uploading of image into the database.

Below is the script of uploading image file which is called on click of upload button in the form.

<?php // Include config file include("config.php");if(isset($_POST['notification'])){$title = $_POST['ntitle'];$type = $_POST['ntype'];$uploadtime = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");$cname = $_FILES['sfile']['name'];}if(!empty($cname)){$tname = $_FILES['sfile']['tmp_name'];$tname = $_FILES['sfile']['tmp_name'];$size= $_FILES['sfile']['size'];$name = $_SESSION['firstname'].date("his");$fext = pathinfo($cname, PATHINFO_EXTENSION);$fire = pathinfo($name,PATHINFO_FILENAME);$savename = $fire.".".$fext;$finalfile = "image/$savename";}if(!empty($cname)){ if($size < 500000){$check = move_uploaded_file($tname,$finalfile);if($check){ $qry1 = "INSERT INTO `image`(`title`, `imagename`, `type`,`time`) VALUES ('$title','$savename','$type','$uploadtime')"; $test =mysqli_query($con,$qry1); if($test = TRUE){?><script>if(confirm("File Uploaded Sucessfully!!!")){document.location = 'show.php';}else{document.location = 'show.php';}</script><?php}else {?><script>if(confirm("file is not uploaded")){document.location = 'show.php';}else{document.location = 'show.php';}</script><?php}} } else{ echo "file size is too large"; } }else {echo "Please select an file to upload"; } ?>
