PHP/MySQL Add Category to Matter


Well folks, I've never had much interest in the back-end area, but for bigger reasons I'm having to learn.

So far I can do the basics, which are insert, delete, update, view the data using php/mysql.

Now I came across a problem that I couldn't do using the handouts, which is to register an article in a certain category.

I tried to do an INSERT followed by a SELECT but I was not successful, as the matter does not change the id_cat, it has the value "0" and not the value "1" which would refer to the category.

If anyone can give me an example of how the INSERT + SELECT would be I would be grateful.

Thank you very much in advance.

(NOTE: I'm not using OO…, I'm doing it the old way with mysql_, which is the easiest way to learn.)

Complete code, I added the id_cat more continues generating id 0, to check if he was at least identifying the SELECT I changed the id_cat from int to varchar and the same record the category name in id_cat normally.

if(isset($_POST['enviar'])) {

    $id_cat = $_POST['cat_lancamentos'];
    $titulo = $_POST['titulo'];
    $original = $_POST['original'];
    $capa = $_FILES["capa"] ["name"];
    $lancamento = $_POST['lancamento'];
    $genero = $_POST['genero'];
    $diretor = $_POST['diretor'];
    $sinopse = $_POST['sinopse'];
    $midia = $_POST['video'];

    $caminho_img = "../capas/";    
    if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES["capa"]["tmp_name"],$caminho_img."/".$capa)) {    
    $mysql_path = $caminho_img."/".$capa;

            $sql=mysql_query("INSERT INTO lancamentos  VALUES('', '$id_cat', '$titulo', '$original', '$capa', '$diretor', '$lancamento', '$genero', '$midia', '', '', '$sinopse')");
            echo "INSERT INTO lancamentos VALUES('', '$id_cat', '$titulo', '$original', '$capa', '$diretor', '$lancamento', '$genero', '$midia', '', '', '$sinopse')";

                header("location: lancamentos-gerenciar.php");

My MySQL Tables

CREATE TABLE `cat_lancamentos` (
  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `nome` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
  PRIMARY KEY  (`id`)

CREATE TABLE `lancamentos` (
  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `id_cat` bigint(20) NOT NULL,
  `titulo` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `original` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `capa` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  `diretor` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `lancamento` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `genero` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `midia` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `temporada` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `episodios` varchar(20) NOT NULL,
  `sinopse` text NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`id`)


Look in your table structure where it is:

`id_cat` bigint(20) NOT NULL, // aqui você diz que não pode ser null

Look at your php where you have the insert:

$sql = mysql_query("INSERT INTO lancamentos (id, id_cat, titulo, original, capa, diretor, lancamento, genero, midia, temporada, episodios, sinopse)  VALUES('', '', '$titulo', '$original', '$capa', '$diretor', '$lancamento', '$genero', '$midia', '', '', '$sinopse')

You are passing null in id_cat

Another thing, you made the structure for a FOREIGN KEY , but you didn't list the tables, that is, this FK (id_cat) is not guaranteeing data integrity, you would have to make the relationship like this:

ALTER TABLE `lancamentos` 
ADD CONSTRAINT `fk_lancamentos`
FOREIGN KEY (`id_cat`)
REFERENCES `cat_lancamentos` (`id`)

EDIT: For the id_cat to be registered correctly, this logic must be followed:

  1. Have at least one record in cat_lancamentos
  2. on Screen the user will choose this release, then its id should be saved for the next step
  3. Register the id of cat_lancamentos in the id_cat and its other attributes in the launches table
