How to delete the data from database using PHP ?

To delete the data from database table by clicking the hyper link we first need to pass the unique identifier or ID as the GET request parameter in the URL. E.g <a href="delete.php?id=5">Delete</a> • In the above code we are going to pass the id with value equal to 5. • We can get this id value on delete.php page with PHP by $_GET[' '] or $_REQUEST[''] functions. $id = $_GET['id'];

How to pass the id of record from database to the anchor tag href link?

We will pass the id into the ' href ' attribute of anchor tag . • First will write the file name e.g ' delete.php ' . • Then will use the question mark symbol ?. • Then will pass the parameters e.g ' id=5 '

So the overall URL link will be like as delete.php?id=5 Note! We can pass multiple parameters in the URL with ' & ' symbol. e.g delete.php?user_id=5&record_id=55
