PHP Integrating PHP with Databases Using Relational Tables Using a Prepared Statement

Change the query to a prepared statement that binds the passed argument before executing the query.

I am not sure what is wrong with my code in this case. After checking a couple of threads about this Coding Challenge I am not sure what I am doing wrong. The error that is thrown is Oops! It looks like Task 2 is no longer passing but the goal of the third task is to change the WHERE media_id = $media.id to WHERE media_id = ? then use $results->bindParam();

Can anyone help me out? Really not sure what I am missing here...

index.php
<?php
function get_member($member_id) {
    include("connection.php");

    try {
      $results = $db->prepare(
          "SELECT member_id, email, fullname, level
          FROM members
          WHERE member_id = ?"
      );
      $results->bindParam(1, $member_id, PDO::PARAM_INT);
    } catch (Exception $e) {
      echo "bad query";
    }

    $members = $results->fetchAll();
    return $members;
}

Hi!

You missed calling the execute method. Here is the full, correct code!

<?php
function get_member($member_id) {
    include("connection.php");

    try {
      $results = $db->prepare(
          "SELECT member_id, email, fullname, level
          FROM members
          WHERE member_id = ?"
      );
      $results->bindParam(1,$member_id,PDO::PARAM_INT);
      $results->execute();
    } catch (Exception $e) {
      echo "bad query";
    }

    $members = $results->fetchAll();
    return $members;
}

Thank you! I think I had included this in an earlier iteration but removed it because of another error :P Much Appreciated!
