How To Delete Existing Rows in a Table


How To Delete Existing Rows in a Table? - MySQL FAQs - Managing Tables and Running Queries with PHP Scripts



If you want to remove a row from a table, you can use the DELETE statement with a WHERE clause to identify the row. The following sample script deletes one row:

  include "mysql_connection.php";

  $sql = "DELETE FROM fyi_links WHERE id = 1102";
  if (mysql_query($sql, $con)) {
    print(mysql_affected_rows() . " rows deleted.\n");
  } else {
    print("SQL statement failed.\n");


If you run this script, you will get something like this:

1 rows deleted.
