questions - Question:how to use delete command in php mysql?

The DELETE statement is used to delete records in a table.

Delete Data In a Database

The DELETE FROM statement is used to delete records from a database table.


DELETE FROM table_name
WHERE some_column = some_value

Note: Notice the WHERE clause in the DELETE syntax. The WHERE clause specifies which record or records that should be deleted. If you omit the WHERE clause, all records will be deleted!


To get PHP to execute the statement above we must use the mysqli_query() function. This function is used to send a query or command to a MySQL connection.


Look at the following "Persons" table:

FirstName LastName Age
Peter Griffin 35
Glenn Quagmire 33

The following example deletes all the records in the "Persons" table where LastName='Griffin':

// Check connection
if (mysqli_connect_errno())
  echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();

mysqli_query($con,"DELETE FROM Persons WHERE LastName='Griffin'");
