Delete All Rows Using PDO in PHP

In this tutorial, we will create a Delete All Rows using PDO. This code can delete the entire data in the database server through the PDO query. The code uses a PDO to remove all data in the table row instantly. This a friendly-user kind of system, feel free to use and modify it

We will be using PDO as a query scripting it an acronym for PHP Data Objects. It is a lean, clean, and consistent way to access databases. This means developers can write portable code much more accessible.

Getting Started:

First, you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that runs PHP scripts. Here’s the link for the XAMPP server https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html.

And, this is the link for the bootstrap that I used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

Creating Database

Open your database web server then create a database name in it db_pdo_delete, after that, click Import then locates the database file inside the folder of the application then click ok.

Creating the database connection

Open your any kind of text editor(notepad++, etc..). Then just copy/paste the code below then name it conn.php.

<?php
    $conn = new PDO( 'mysql:host=localhost;dbname=db_pdo_delete', 'root', '');
    if(!$conn){
        die("Fatal Error: Connection Failed!");
    }
?>

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create the forms simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

    </div>
<script src="js/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>	
<script src="js/bootstrap.js"></script>	
</body>
</html>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will delete all data when the button is clicked. To do this just kindly write these block of codes inside the text editor, then save it as delete.php.

<?php
    require_once 'conn.php';
    $query = $conn->prepare("DELETE from `member`");
    $query->execute();
 
    echo "<script>alert('Successfully deleted all members!')</script>";
    echo "<script>window.location='index.php'</script>";
?>
There you have it we successfully created a Delete All Rows using PDO. I hope that this simple tutorial help you to what you are looking for. For more updates and tutorials just kindly visit this site. Enjoy Coding!
