Create the sample PHP application

Create a file yb-sql-sample.php and copy the following content into it.


try {
  /* Establish connection. */
  $dbh = new PDO('pgsql:host=;port=5433;dbname=yugabyte;user=yugabyte;password=yugabyte',
                 'yugabyte', null, array(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE => PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION,
                                         PDO::ATTR_EMULATE_PREPARES => true,
                                         PDO::ATTR_PERSISTENT => true));

  /* Create the table if it doesn't exist. */
  $stmt = 'CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS employee (id int PRIMARY KEY,
                                                name   varchar,
                                                salary int,
                                                dept   varchar)';

  /* Prepare the insert statement. */
  $insert_stmt = $dbh->prepare('INSERT INTO employee(id, name, salary, dept) ' .
                               'VALUES (:id, :name, :salary, :dept)');

  /* Insert a row. */
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':id', 10, PDO::PARAM_INT);
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':name', 'Jane', PDO::PARAM_STR);
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':salary', 150000, PDO::PARAM_INT);
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':dept', 'Engineering', PDO::PARAM_STR);

  /* Insert a row. */
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':id', 11, PDO::PARAM_INT);
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':name', 'Joe', PDO::PARAM_STR);
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':salary', 140000, PDO::PARAM_INT);
  $insert_stmt->bindValue(':dept', 'Finance', PDO::PARAM_STR);

  echo "Inserted new records successfully.\n";

  /* Prepare query statement to retrieve user info by id */
  $query = $dbh->prepare('SELECT name, salary, dept FROM employee WHERE id = :id');

  $query->bindValue(':id', 11, PDO::PARAM_INT);
  $user_info = $query->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);

  echo "Retrieving info for user id 11...\n";

} catch (Exception $excp) {
  print "EXCEPTION: " . $excp->getMessage() . "\n";

$ php yb-sql-sample.php

and you should see the following output:
