whay i cant retrive the data ?

heres code i think error is in line "$results = $db->query("SELECT * FROM teacher WHERE name=$name AND password=$password ");"

$db = new PDO("mysql:host=localhost;dbname=feedback;port=8808","root","krishna");
$db->exec("SET NAMES 'utf8'");
catch (exception $e){
    echo'Could Not Connect To The Database';
    $results = $db->query("SELECT * FROM teacher WHERE name=$name AND password=$password ");
} catch (Exception $ex) {
    echo 'Data Can Not Be retrived';

Sorry, if you refresh the page it should be there now.

Try changing fetchall to fetchAll - could help.

Try a prepared statement:

$stmt = $db->prepare("SELECT * FROM teacher WHERE name = :name AND password = :password ");
$stmt->bindParam(':name', $name, PDO::PARAM_STR);
$stmt->bindParam(':password', $password, PDO::PARAM_STR);
 } catch (Exception $ex) { 
echo 'Data Can Not Be retrived'; exit(); } 



If you're not getting anything in your var_dump, I might suggest checking your SQL query in your phpMyAdmin or another query program to make sure that the query itself is working.

You're getting the catch from your second try/catch block, then, of 'Data can not be retrieved?'

I am getting the result if i replace the veriable name ($name , $password) with string ('krishna' , 'krishna'). its jst not working because of variable.
