Display JPG stored in MySQL Binary record

Display JPG stored in MySQL Binary record

I have successfully stored a standard JPG photograph in MySQL using a simple DA insert page. The Photofile field structure is setup as ( longblob, BINARY ).

Now I'd like to recall that file and display this image as desired.

How is the <img> operation accomplished?

php:
<table class="WADAResultsTable" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

                <tr>
                  <th class="WADAResultsTableHeader">Date:</th>
                  <th class="WADAResultsTableHeader">Description:</th>
                  <th class="WADAResultsTableHeader">Filename:</th>
                  <th class="WADAResultsTableHeader">&nbsp;</th>                  
                </tr>
                <?php do { ?>
                  <tr class="<?php echo $WARRT_AltClass1->getClass(true); ?>">
                    <td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><a href=""></a><?php echo($row_WADAfiles['Date']); ?></td>
                    <td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><?php echo($row_WADAfiles['Description']); ?></td>
                    <td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><?php echo $row_WADAfiles['Photofile']; ?></td>
                    <td class="WADAResultsTableCell"><a href="<?php echo $row_WADAfiles['Photofile']; ?>"><img  src="images/mini_info.png" border="0" /></a></td>                    
                  </tr>
                  <?php } while ($row_WADAfiles mysql_fetch_assoc($WADAfiles)); ?>
              </table>



I'm getting the following error...

The requested URL /102_2575.JPG was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Thanks in advance.

I would suggest that instead of inserting the image into the database, that you just upload it to your server and store the image name and root relative path in your database. Then you can dynamically get the image path and name from your database and the image will be uploaded to your server.

Jimmy,

Thank you for your quick response.

I truly appreciate your comment, but I have a requirement for this project to actually store the binary image in MySQL, and then at times retrieve the image from MySQL and display that records image file.

Your response and comments are greatly appreciated.

I'm really confused. MySQL provides a way to store Binaries with a BLOB. Once I've stored a file in there, how on earth am I supposed to get it out?

I've spent almost 5 hours today trying to retrieve specific JPG images out of a Longblob field. I can display the filename that was stored from the upload / insert, but I can't display the image.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Digital File pro does not support storing the image in the MySQL Database in blob fields, you will have to hand the functionality to store the image and retrieve it.

I was able to find the following article through Google that you may find helpful:
php-example-php-form-image-upload-store-in-mysql-database-retreive.html


but this is not something that WebAssist can offer support on.
