For example, i will use xampp server so, i willl navigate to C/xampp/htdocs/.

Here, I will “demo” the name of this folder. Then open this folder in any text editor (i will use sublime text editor).

Step 2 – Execute SQL query to Create Table

In step 2, open your browser and type http://localhost/phpmyadmin. Then create database and table by running the following sql query:

CREATE DATABASE my_db;


CREATE TABLE `customers` (
`custId` INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`fname` VARCHAR(255) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
`lname` VARCHAR(255) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
`email` VARCHAR(255) NULL DEFAULT NULL,
`created` DATETIME NULL DEFAULT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`custId`)
)
COLLATE='latin1_swedish_ci'
ENGINE=InnoDB
AUTO_INCREMENT=1;

INSERT INTO `customers` (`custId`, `fname`, `lname`, `email`, `created`) VALUES (NULL, 'Tiago', 'Sam', '[email protected]', NULL), (NULL, 'Anil', 'Kumar', '[email protected]', NULL);

Step 3 – Create phpmyadmin MySQL Database Connection File

In step 3, create a php file that named mydbCon.php. Which is used to connect phpmyadmin mysql database to project (demo).

So, now create mydbCon.php file and add the below given code into your file:

<?php

    $hName='localhost'; // host name

    $uName='root';   // database user name

    $password='';   // database password

    $dbName = "my_db"; // database name

    $dbCon = mysqli_connect($hName,$uName,$password,"$dbName");

      if(!$dbCon){
          die('Could not Connect MySql Server:' .mysql_error());
      }
?>

Step 4 – Fetch Single Row From Database in PHP

In step 4, you need to create a php file that named fetch-single-row-data.php. Which is used to fetch single row data from MySQL database table in PHP.

So add the following code on fetch-single-row-data.php file:

<?php


include 'mydbCon.php';

$query="select * from customers limit 1"; // Fetch all the data from the table customers

$result=mysqli_query($dbCon,$query);

$singleRow = mysqli_fetch_row($result);

?>

Step 5 – Create Html Page To Display Fetched Data From MySQL DB

<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>How to Fetch Single Row Data From Database in PHP</title>
