Delete Contact Information

We already did in the tutorial for Insert Contact Information and Update Contact Information. So, I decided to create a follow-up tutorial for Delete Contact Information. We're gonna use Delete Statement to delete data from our database table. This is our data. Result

Delete - PHP Query Using PDO

  1. <?php
  2. require_once('db.php');
  4. $get_id=$_GET['tbl_member_id'];
  6. // sql to delete a record
  7. $sql = "Delete from tbl_member where tbl_member_id = '$get_id'";
  9. // use exec() because no results are returned
  10. $conn->exec($sql);
  11. header('location:index.php');
  12. ?>

Delete Button

  1. <a href="delete_contact.php<?php echo '?tbl_member_id='.$id; ?>">
  2. <button type="submit" class="btn_confirm" onclick="return confirm(' Delete Contact ( <?php echo $first_name?> ) ? ');">
