How to insert date and time online meetings in HTML and PHP MySQL

Create the HTML form

Create an HTML form that allows users to enter the date and time of the meeting. You can use the <input> tag with the type attribute set to "datetime-local" to display a date and time input field.

<form action="insert.php" method="POST">
  <label for="meeting_time">Meeting Time:</label>
  <input type="datetime-local" id="meeting_time" name="meeting_time">
  <input type="submit" value="Schedule Meeting">

Handle the form submission

Create a PHP script (e.g., insert.php) that handles the form submission. In this script, you will retrieve the meeting time from the form data and insert it into the database using PDO.

$meetingTime = $_POST['meeting_time'];

try {
  // Create a new PDO instance
  $pdo = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=your_database_name', 'username', 'password');
  $stmt = $pdo->prepare("INSERT INTO meetings (meeting_time) VALUES (:meeting_time)");

  $stmt->bindParam(':meeting_time', $meetingTime);
  // Execute the statement
  echo "Meeting scheduled successfully!";
} catch (PDOException $e) {
  echo "Error: " . $e->getMessage();

Make sure to replace 'localhost', 'your_database_name', 'username', and 'password' with your actual database details.

Create the database table

Before running the code, make sure you have a database table named "meetings" with a column named "meeting_time" (of type DATETIME) to store the meeting date and time.

CREATE TABLE meetings (
  meeting_time DATETIME

When a user submits the form, the meeting time will be inserted into the database using PHP PDO.
