          <tbody>
          {this.state.data.map((result) => {
            return (
             
                 <tr>
                  <td>{result.id}</td>

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {
    die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
} 
    //Getting data query
    $trp = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * from userdetails");
    $rows = array();
    while($r = mysqli_fetch_assoc($trp)) {
