Search Data In SQLite3 using PHP

In this tutorial, we will create a Search Data In SQLite3 using PHP. This code will search for data in the table when the user submits a keyword string in the form. The system uses the PHP POST method to launch a specific function that examines data in the SQLite database using a SELECT query. It adds a conditional statement in the WHERE clause LIKE with keyword between two %. This a free program; you can apply this to your system as your own.

We will be using SQLite that provides an interface for accessing the database. It includes class interfaces to the SQL commands. And also, it allows you to create SQL functions and aggregate using PHP.

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/.

Installing SQLite Browser

We will now then install the SQLite data viewer, here’s the link for the DB Browser for SQLite http://sqlitebrowser.org/.

Setting Up SQLite

First, we are going to enable SQLite 3 in our PHP.

  1. Open localhost server folder XAMPP, etc. and locate php.ini.
  2. Open php.ini and enable sqlite3 by removing the semicolon in the line.

Save changes and Restart Server.

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 SQLite3('db/db_member') or die("Unable to open database!");
    $query="CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `member`(mem_id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT NOT NULL, firstname TEXT, lastname TEXT, address TEXT)";
 
    $conn->exec($query);
?>

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 you text editor, then save it as index.php.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />

    <div class="col-md-6 well">
        <h3 class="text-primary">PHP - Search Data In SQLite3</h3>
        <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
        <div class="col-md-4">
            <form method="POST" action="insert.php">
                <div class="form-group">
                    <label>Firstname</label>
                    <input type="text" class="form-control" name="firstname" required="required"/>
                </div>
                <div class="form-group">
                    <label>Lastname</label>
                    <input type="text" class="form-control" name="lastname" required="required"/>
                </div>
                <div class="form-group">
                    <label>Address</label>
                    <input type="text" class="form-control" name="address" required="required"/>
                </div>
                <center><button class="btn btn-primary" name="insert" >Insert</button></center>
            </form>
        </div>
        <div class="col-md-8">
            <form method="POST" class="form-inline" action="">
                <label>Search:</label>
                <input type="text" name="keyword" class="form-control" placeholder="Enter here..." required="required"/>
                <button class="btn btn-success" name="search"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-search"></span> Search</button>
            </form>
            <br />
            <table class="table table-bordered">
                <thead class="alert-info">
                    <tr >
                        <th>Firstname</th>
                        <th>Lastname</th>
                        <th>Address</th>
                    </tr>
                </thead>
                <tbody>
                    <?php include'search_data.php'?>
                </tbody>
            </table>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>	
</html>

Creating the SQLite Query

This code contains the SQLite query of the application. This code will store the data inputs to SQLite database. To do this just copy and write these block of codes as shown below inside the text editor, then save it as insert.php.

<?php
    require_once'conn.php';
    if(ISSET($_POST['insert'])){
        $firstname=$_POST['firstname'];
        $lastname=$_POST['lastname'];
        $address=$_POST['address'];
 
 
        $query="INSERT INTO `member` (firstname, lastname, address) VALUES('$firstname', '$lastname', '$address')";
 
        $conn->exec($query);
 
        header("location:index.php");
    }
?>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will search a data in the SQLite database. To do this just copy and write these block of codes as shown below inside the text editor, then save it as search_data.php.

<?php
    require'conn.php';
 
    if(ISSET($_POST['search'])){
        $keyword = $_POST['keyword'];
        $query=$conn->query("SELECT * FROM `member` WHERE `firstname` LIKE '%$keyword%' OR `lastname` LIKE '%$keyword%' OR `address` LIKE '%$keyword%'") or die("Failed to fetch row!");
        while($fetch=$query->fetchArray()){
            echo"<tr><td>".$fetch['firstname']."</td><td>".$fetch['lastname']."</td><td>".$fetch['address']."</td></tr>";
        }
    }else{
        $query=$conn->query("SELECT * FROM `member`") or die("Failed to fetch row!");
        while($fetch=$query->fetchArray()){
            echo"<tr><td>".$fetch['firstname']."</td><td>".$fetch['lastname']."</td><td>".$fetch['address']."</td></tr>";
        }
    }
?>
