Creating a Database

Let’s start by creating database first


Name of the database : imagetable

Name of the table : imagetable

CREATE TABLE `imagetable` (
 `img_name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
 `img_path` varchar(150) NOT NULL,


Server Configuration



I am using local server (Wamp Server) for this tutorial.

Regarding username and password default’s are “root” and empty field for password you can replace your credentials.



//Define your host here.
$Name = "localhost";

//Define your database username here.
$User = "root";

//Define your database password here.
$Pass = "";

//Define your database name here.
$DB = "imageupload";





Include the config file to connect to database and the insert data into table.

include 'config.php' ;


Using this file we are decoding the image and saving it into a folder using the title provided by the user.



Insert title, image path in your database

$sql = "insert into imagetable(img_name,img_path) values('$image_name','$path');";


Path where image is stored in your database

$path = "Uploads/$image_name.jpg";


Close the database




include 'config.php' ;

$con = mysqli_connect($Name,$User,$Pass,$DB);

$image_name = $_POST['image_name'];
$image = $_POST['image'];

$path = "Uploads/$image_name.jpg";

$sql = "insert into imagetable(img_name,img_path) values('$image_name','$path');";

echo json_encode(array('response'=>"Successfully Uploaded..."));
echo json_encode(array('response'=>"Failed..."));
