How to retrieve selected rows from the MySQL database and return information about Android?


I am working on an Android project and I am completely new to Android. I'm following the below tutorial link. My project is about police registry system. I am connecting to MySQL database with the help of PHP and JSON.

I have created a form where user's can register and they can login using their user name and password. Also I have made a form where user can register their complaint and complaints are stored in a single database known as db_complaints in the database. I am able to retrieve all complaints using following PHP code.


Our "" file connects to database every time we include or require
it within a php script.  Since we want this script to add a new user to our db,
we will be talking with our database, and therefore,
let's require the connection to happen:

//initial query

if (!empty($_POST)) {
    //initial query
    $query = "INSERT INTO complaints ( username, title, message ) VALUES ( :user, :title, :message ) ";

    //Update query
    $query_params = array(
        ':user' => $_POST['username'],
        ':title' => $_POST['title'],
        ':message' => $_POST['message']

//execute query
try {
    $stmt   = $db->prepare($query);
$result = $stmt->execute($query_params);
catch (PDOException $ex) {
    $response["success"] = 0;
    $response["message"] = "Database Error!";

// Finally, we can retrieve all of the found rows into an array using fetchAll
$rows = $stmt->fetchAll();

if ($rows) {
    $response["success"] = 1;
    $response["message"] = "Post Available!";
    $response["posts"]   = array();

    foreach ($rows as $row) {
        $post             = array();
        $post["post_id"]  = $row["post_id"];

        $post["username"] = $row["username"];
        $post["title"]    = $row["title"];
        $post["message"]  = $row["message"];

        //update our repsonse JSON data
        array_push($response["posts"], $post);

    // echoing JSON response
    echo json_encode($response);

} else {
    $response["success"] = 0;
    $response["message"] = "No Post Available!";


i want to retrieve a particular user complaints separately so they can view there complaints in my_complaints form but i am not able to do this and i have been stuck.

Your code looks pretty neat using prepared statements and error handling, so where is your problem actually?

$query = "SELECT * FROM complaints WHERE username = :user";
$query_params = array(':user' => $_POST['username']);

That query should do the trick to retrieve complaints from a specific user.
