Data Insertion in CodeIgniter

In this tutorial we will learn about how to insert data into database in codeIgniter.
1.Create a database then configure your db credential in application/database.php

$active_group = 'default';
$query_builder = TRUE;
$db['default'] = array(
	'dsn'	=> '',
	'hostname' => 'localhost', // your hostname
	'username' => 'root', // your DB username
	'password' => '',     // DB password
	'database' => 'cidb', // your database name
	'dbdriver' => 'mysqli',
	'dbprefix' => '',
	'pconnect' => FALSE,
	'db_debug' => (ENVIRONMENT !== 'production'),
	'cache_on' => FALSE,
	'cachedir' => '',
	'char_set' => 'utf8',
	'dbcollat' => 'utf8_general_ci',
	'swap_pre' => '',
	'encrypt' => FALSE,
	'compress' => FALSE,
	'stricton' => FALSE,
	'failover' => array(),
	'save_queries' => TRUE

2. load some libraries and helpers in application/autoload.php

$autoload['libraries'] = array('database','session');
$autoload['helper'] = array('html','form');
  • Database library used for database related queries
  • Session library  used for display success / error message using flashdata.
  • Html Helper for used for link_tag
  • form helper used for form

First create a  view(registration.php) inside application/view folder

<?php echo form_open('registration',['name'=>'registration'])?>
<!---- Success Message ---->
<?php if ($this->session->flashdata('success')) { ?>
 <p style="color:red; font-size:16px; "><?php echo $this->session->flashdata('success'); ?></p>
<?php } ?>
<!---- Error Message ---->
<?php if ($this->session->flashdata('error')) { ?>
<p style="color:red; font-size:16px;"><?php echo $this->session->flashdata('error'); ?></p>
<?php } ?>
<?php echo form_label('Enter your Name', 'name'); ?>
<?php echo form_input(['name'=>'fullname','id'=>'fullname','placeholder'=>'Enter you full name','value'=>set_value('fullname')]);?>
<?php echo form_error('fullname',"<div style='color:red'>","</div>");?>
<?php echo form_label('Enter your Contact Mobile Number', 'mobnumber'); ?>
<?php echo form_input(['name'=>'mobnumber','id'=>'mobnumber','placeholder'=>'Enter your Contact Mobile Number','value'=>set_value('mobnumber')]);?>
<?php echo form_error('mobnumber',"<div style='color:red'>","</div>");?>
<?php echo form_label('Enter your Valid Email id', 'emailid'); ?>
<?php echo form_input(['name'=>'emailid','id'=>'emailid','placeholder'=>'Enter your Valid Email id','value'=>set_value('emailid')]);?>
<?php echo form_error('emailid',"<div style='color:red'>","</div>");?>
<?php echo form_label('Select gender','gender'); ?> :
echo form_dropdown('gender',$options);?>
<?php echo form_label('Enter your address','address'); ?> <br />
<?php echo form_textarea(['name'=>'address','rows'=>'5','cols'=>'60','id'=>'address','class'=>'form-control','placeholder'=>'Enter your address','value'=>set_value('address')]);?>
<?php echo form_error('address',"<div style='color:red'>","</div>");?>
<p class="termcondtion">
<?php echo form_checkbox('TermsCondition','accept', TRUE); ?>
<?php echo form_label('Accept terms and conditions','terms'); ?>
<p class="login button">
<?php echo form_submit(['name'=>'submit','value'=>'Submit']);?>
<?php echo form_close();?>

Now create a controller (Registration.php) inside application/controller. You can also set your default controller in application/routes.php

$route['default_controller'] = 'Registration';
Class Registration extends CI_Controller{
public function index(){
//library form validation . you can also load this libray in application/autoload.php
$this->form_validation->set_rules('fullname','Full Name','required');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('mobnumber','Mobile Number','required|numeric|exact_length[10]');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('emailid','Email id','required|valid_email');

Create a model (Registration_Model.php) inside application/model.

Class Registration_Model extends CI_Model{
public function insertdata($fname,$mnumber,$emaild,$gender,$adress,$tc){
$this->session->set_flashdata('success', 'Registration successful');
$this->session->set_flashdata('error', 'Somthing went worng. Error!!');

SQL Table structure for tblusers

CREATE TABLE `tblusers` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `fullName` varchar(150) DEFAULT NULL,
  `mobileNumber` char(12) DEFAULT NULL,
  `emailId` varchar(50) DEFAULT NULL,
  `gender` varchar(30) DEFAULT NULL,
  `address` mediumtext,
  `termsCondition` varchar(200) DEFAULT NULL,
  `postingDate` timestamp NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
