read value from mysql


i want read value from database mysql localhost

and get this value to use in arduino

i use ethernet shield

Have you allready tried some code ?
Did you check the examples of the ethernet library?

How does this relate to your other post ?

yes .. and i installed another library
but to no avail

How does this relate to your other post ?

Here I explained it better

thank you

You have not explained it well enough BUT i have made you a script and test_user account on my database and ran the code on my ethernet shield and tested it fully… you own me lol

here’s the code, you only have select privileges so no funny stuff…
I assume you know how to setup a database, just make sure you atleast have a unique ID which is auto incrementing as a minimum, but for now you can have access to my database for testing this script. All you need to do is just flash the code to your Arduino and run it, I have already made the PHP script and database for you…
The Arduino code used the default Ethernet library and a mixture of the DHCP and webClientRepeting examples along with some custom code written by myself which handles the incoming data and assigns it to variables, which auto syncs and can be repeated continuously.

PHP server code

$buffer1 = array();
$buffer2 = array();
$v = 0;
//setting header to json
$op = htmlentities ($_GET["op"]);
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
define('DB_USERNAME', 'south609_Test_User');
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'TestUser');
define('DB_NAME', 'south609_ESP8266');
//get connection
$mysqli = new mysqli(DB_HOST, DB_USERNAME, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME);
    die("Connection failed: " . $mysqli->error);
// query 
$sql = "SELECT temp,hum FROM ESP8266 WHERE ID = '$op'"; // we will only retrieve one row as we are getting it by a unique ID
$result = $mysqli->query($sql);
if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
    // output data of each row
    while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
        $buffer1[$v] = $row["temp"];
        $buffer2[$v] = $row["hum"];
if ($buffer1) {
    echo "#" . $buffer1[0] . "$" . $buffer2[0] . "$";
else {
    echo "Failed";
//free memory associated with result
//close connection

Arduino code to run the Ethernet Shield
