First Create a database with name demo. Now create a table with name data.
Here the strcuture of table

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `data` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `name` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `email` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `contactno` bigint(20) NOT NULL,
  `gender` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `education` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `address` longtext NOT NULL
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=4 DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

Code for mysql connection with php

<?php
define('DB_SERVER','localhost');
define('DB_USER','root');
define('DB_PASS' ,'');
define('DB_NAME', 'demos');
$conn = mysql_connect(DB_SERVER,DB_USER,DB_PASS)
or
die('localhost connection problem'.mysql_error());
mysql_select_db(DB_NAME, $conn);
?>

Create a HTML Form for user inputs

<form name="insert" action="" method="post">
<table width="100%"  border="0">
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row">Name </th>
<td width="71%"><input type="text" name="name" id="name" value=""  class="form-control" required />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row">Email id </th>
<td width="71%"><input type="email" name="email" id="email" value=""  class="form-control" required />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row">Contact no</th>
<td width="71%">
<input type="text" name="contactno" id="contactno" value=""  class="form-control" maxlength="10" required /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row">Gender</th>
<td width="71%"><input type="radio" name="gender" value="Male" checked >Male
<input type="radio" name="gender" value="Female" >female</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row">Education</th>
<td width="71%"><select name="education" id="email" class="form-control" required >
<option value="">Select your Education</option>
<option value="Post Graduate">Post Graduate</option>
<option value="Graduate">Graduate</option>
<option value="Intermediate">Intermediate</option>
<option value="High School">High School</option>
<option value="Other">Other</option>
</select></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row">Address</th>
<td width="71%"><textarea name="addrss" class="form-control"  required></textarea> </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th height="62" scope="row"></th>
<td width="71%"><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" class="btn-group-sm" /> </td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>

Now get user inputs and store in the PHP variables

$name=$_POST['name'];
$email=$_POST['email'];
$contactno=$_POST['contactno'];
$gender=$_POST['gender'];
$education=$_POST['education'];
$adress=$_POST['addrss'];

Query for insert data into mysql using PHP

$query=mysqli_query($conn,"insert into data(name,email,contactno,gender,education,address)
values('$name','$email','$contactno','$gender','$education','$adress')");

Full PHP Script for insert data into database using mysql

if(isset($_POST['submit']))
{
$name=$_POST['name'];
$email=$_POST['email'];
$contactno=$_POST['contactno'];
$gender=$_POST['gender'];
$education=$_POST['education'];
$adress=$_POST['addrss'];
$query=mysqli_query($conn,"insert into data(name,email,contactno,gender,education,address)
values('$name','$email','$contactno','$gender','$education','$adress')");
if($query)
{
echo "<script>alert('Data inserted successfully');</script>";
}
else
{
echo "<script>alert('Data not inserted');</script>";
}
}

Here is the full code that we have written during this tutorial:

<?php
include_once("config.php");
if(isset($_POST['submit']))
{
$name=$_POST['name'];
$email=$_POST['email'];
$contactno=$_POST['contactno'];
$gender=$_POST['gender'];
$education=$_POST['education'];
$adress=$_POST['addrss'];
$query=mysql_query("insert into data(name,email,contactno,gender,education,address)
values('$name','$email','$contactno','$gender','$education','$adress')");
if($query)
{
echo "<script>alert('Data inserted successfully');</script>";
}
else
{
echo "<script>alert('Data not inserted');</script>";
}
}
 ?>
