In this article I will explain how to upload an image into a database and how to see the uploaded image in in the front end. To do this first we create a database and table.

Create Database

<?php  
$con=mysql_connect (
"localhost","root","");
if(!$con)
{
 
die('Could not connect'.mysql_error());
}
if(mysql_query ("create database ABC",$con))
{
 
echo "Your Database Created";
}
else
{
 
echo "Error".mysql_error();
}
mysql_close($con);
?>

Create Table

<?php
$con = mysql_connect ("localhost","root","");
if (!$con)
  {
 
die ('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }
mysql_select_db (
"ABC", $con);
$sql =
"CREATE TABLE tbl_image
(
`id` INT( 50 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
`photo` VARCHAR( 50 ) NOT NULL ,
`status` INT( 50 ) NOT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY ( `id` )
)"
;
mysql_query($sql,$con);
mysql_close($con);
?>

When you create a database and table using MySql you will write the code for uploading an image. The code for uploading an image is as follows:

Upload an Image

<?php
$con=mysql_connect(
"localhost","root","");
mysql_select_db (
"ABC",$con);
if(@$_POST ['submit'])
{
$file = $_FILES [
'file'];
$name1 = $file [
'name'];
$type = $file [
'type'];
$size = $file [
'size'];
$tmppath = $file [
'tmp_name']; 
if($name1!="")
{
if(move_uploaded_file ($tmppath, 'image/'.$name1))//image is a folder in which you will save image
{
$query=
"insert into tbl_image set photo='$name1'";
mysql_query ($query) or
die ('could not updated:'.mysql_error());
echo "Your image upload successfully !!";
}
}
}
?>
<html >
<head>
<
title>Image Upload</title>
</
head>
<
body bgcolor="pink">
<form name="form" action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
Photo <input type="file" name="file" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit" /> 
</form>
</
body>
</html>

Output

When you browse the above code then you will get the following output:

1st.jpg

Now you will click on the Browse button for selecting an image.

2nd.jpg

After selecting an image you will click on the submit button. Then you will get a message i.e. "Your image upload successfully".

3rd.jpg

If you want to see the uploaded an image in the front end then you will write the following code:

Show an Image

<?php  
$con=mysql_connect (
"localhost","root","");
mysql_select_db(
"abc",$con);
@$sql=
"select * from tbl_image where id='1' and status='0'";
@$query=mysql_query($sql);
while(@$row=mysql_fetch_array($query))
{
 @$image=$row [
'photo'];
 
?>
<img src="image/<?php echo $image; ?>" width="360" height="150">
<?php
}
?>

Output

When you browse your code you will get the following output:

4th.jpg
