Creating a Table in PHP


How To Create a Table in PHP?



If you want to create a table, you can run the CREATE TABLE statement as shown in the following sample script:

  include "mysql_connection.php";

  $sql = "CREATE TABLE fyi_links ("
      . " id INTEGER NOT NULL" 
      . ", url VARCHAR(80) NOT NULL"
      . ", notes VARCHAR(1024)"
      . ", counts INTEGER"
      . ", time TIMESTAMP DEFAULT sysdate()"
      . ")";
  if (mysql_query($sql, $con)) {
    print("Table fyi_links created.\n");
  } else {
    print("Table creation failed.\n");


Remember that mysql_query() returns TRUE/FALSE on CREATE statements. If you run this script, you will get something like this:

Table fyi_links created.
