Tutorial: How to Delete Multiple Row in MySQL using PHP

In this tutorial, we will create a Delete Multiple Row in MySQL using PHP. This code can delete a multiple of data when the user clicks the delete button. The code uses MySQLi PHP POST to call a function that erases data that has been checked via a javascript system to use the DELETE query that deletes information in the database table by providing a given id in the WHERE clause. This a user-friendly program. Feel free to modify and use it for your system.

We will be using PHP as a scripting language and interpreter that is used primarily on any web server, including camp, wamp, etc. It is being used to any popular websites because of the modern approach as its today.

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 jquery that I used in this tutorial https://jquery.com/.

Lastly, 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_multiple_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=mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "db_multiple_delete");
 
    if(!$conn){
        die("Error: Failed to connect to database!");
    }
?>

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.

Creating PHP Query

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

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

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will delete multiple row table when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as shown below.
delete.php

<?php
    require_once 'conn.php';
 
    if(ISSET($_POST['delete'])){
        if(ISSET($_POST['check'])){
            $checked = $_POST['check'];
            for($i=0; $i < count($checked); $i++){
                $id = $checked[$i];
                mysqli_query($conn, "DELETE FROM `user` WHERE `user_id`='$id'") or die(mysqli_error());
            }
 
            header('location:index.php');
        }else{
            echo "<script>alert('Please select an item first!')</script>";
            echo "<script>window.location='index.php'</script>";
        }
    }
?>

script.js
Note: To make this script work make sure you save this file inside the js directory.

function selectedCheckbox(check){
    var checkboxes = document.getElementsByName('check[]');
    for(var i in checkboxes){
        checkboxes[i].checked = check.checked;
    }
 
    var count = document.querySelectorAll('input[name="check[]"]:checked').length;
    document.getElementById('count').innerHTML = count;
}
 
function countCheckbox(){
    var count = document.querySelectorAll('input[name="check[]"]:checked').length;
    document.getElementById('count').innerHTML = count;
}
