MY PHP CODE

<?php
$con=mysqli_connect("localhost","prabha","prabha","prabha");
// Check connection
if (mysqli_connect_errno())
  {
  echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();
  }

$sql="INSERT INTO table (username, password)
VALUES
('$_POST[username]','$_POST[password]')";

if (!mysqli_query($con,$sql))
  {
  die('Error: ' . mysqli_error($con));
  }
echo "1 record added";

mysqli_close($con);
?>

When i clicked on submit button after entering username:prabha password:passwordofprabha

It shows the following error. Please fix my code.

Use ` backticks for MYSQL reserved words...

table name "table" is reserved word for MYSQL...

so your query should be as follows...

$sql="INSERT INTO `table` (`username`, `password`)
VALUES
('$_POST[username]','$_POST[password]')";

Some special characters give this type of error, so use

$query="INSERT INTO `tablename` (`name`, `email`)
VALUES
('$_POST[name]','$_POST[email]')";
