PHP MySQL Pagination

Lets create a simple pagination using PHP and MySQL.

Step1 - Create a database connection file.

Save the following file as connection.php.

<?php
 $host="localhost";
 $uname="database username";
 $pass="database password";
 $database = "database name";
 $connection=mysql_connect($host,$uname,$pass) 
 or die("Database Connection Failed");
 
 $result=mysql_select_db($database)
 or die("database cannot be selected");
 
?>

Step2 - Write paging script

<?php
include("connection.php");

$sql = mysql_query("select * from table name"); 
$total = mysql_num_rows($sql);

$adjacents = 3;
$targetpage = "myPage.php"; //your file name
$limit = 12; //how many items to show per page
$page = $_GET['page'];

if($page){ 
$start = ($page - 1) * $limit; //first item to display on this page
}else{
$start = 0;
}

/* Setup page vars for display. */
if ($page == 0) $page = 1; //if no page var is given, default to 1.
$prev = $page - 1; //previous page is current page - 1
$next = $page + 1; //next page is current page + 1
$lastpage = ceil($total/$limit); //lastpage.
$lpm1 = $lastpage - 1; //last page minus 1

$sql2 = "select * from table name where 1=1";
$sql2 .= " order by id desc limit $start ,$limit ";
$sql_query = mysql_query($sql2); 
$curnm = mysql_num_rows($sql_query);

/* CREATE THE PAGINATION */

$pagination = "";
if($lastpage > 1)
{ 
$pagination .= "<div class='pagination1'> <ul>";
if ($page > $counter+1) {
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$prev\">prev</a></li>"; 
}

if ($lastpage < 7 + ($adjacents * 2)) 
{ 
for ($counter = 1; $counter <= $lastpage; $counter++)
{
if ($counter == $page)
$pagination.= "<li><a href='#' class='active'>$counter</a></li>";
else
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$counter\">$counter</a></li>"; 
}
}
elseif($lastpage > 5 + ($adjacents * 2)) //enough pages to hide some
{
//close to beginning; only hide later pages
if($page < 1 + ($adjacents * 2)) 
{
for ($counter = 1; $counter < 4 + ($adjacents * 2); $counter++)
{
if ($counter == $page)
$pagination.= "<li><a href='#' class='active'>$counter</a></li>";
else
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$counter\">$counter</a></li>"; 
}
$pagination.= "<li>...</li>";
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$lpm1\">$lpm1</a></li>";
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$lastpage\">$lastpage</a></li>"; 
}
//in middle; hide some front and some back
elseif($lastpage - ($adjacents * 2) > $page && $page > ($adjacents * 2))
{
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=1\">1</a></li>";
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=2\">2</a></li>";
$pagination.= "<li>...</li>";
for ($counter = $page - $adjacents; $counter <= $page + $adjacents; $counter++)
{
if ($counter == $page)
$pagination.= "<li><a href='#' class='active'>$counter</a></li>";
else
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$counter\">$counter</a></li>"; 
}
$pagination.= "<li>...</li>";
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$lpm1\">$lpm1</a></li>";
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$lastpage\">$lastpage</a></li>"; 
}
//close to end; only hide early pages
else
{
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=1\">1</a></li>";
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=2\">2</a></li>";
$pagination.= "<li>...</li>";
for ($counter = $lastpage - (2 + ($adjacents * 2)); $counter <= $lastpage; 
$counter++)
{
if ($counter == $page)
$pagination.= "<li><a href='#' class='active'>$counter</a></li>";
else
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$counter\">$counter</a></li>"; 
}
}
}

//next button
if ($page < $counter - 1) 
$pagination.= "<li><a href=\"$targetpage?page=$next\">next</a></li>";
else
$pagination.= "";
$pagination.= "</ul></div>\n"; 
}


?>
