MySQL Question

Two tables displayed on one page using PHP, PDO and MySql

I am trying to create a CRUD dashboard, using a MySql backend and a bootstrap front-end with PHP and PDO to communicate with the database. I am a noob to web development, but not to coding.

The goal is to create a web app to log my patient consults. Thus, my table structure is a single "main" table and two children tables with relationships to the "main" table, named "consults" and "procedures".

I am trying to make a dashboard, where I display my "main" table, and then add two children tables below it. (Later on I will style it better, but I am trying to get this working).

The following is the best MWE I could think of (would love it if someone had a simpler solution). The first "logbook patients" table works well, and displays rows of patients well. Its the second table that is the problem, and in particular:

$sql = "SELECT * FROM proc";
if($result = $pdo->query($sql)){
if($result->rowCount() > 0){


This is the area I keep getting an error. The error is:


Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function query() on null in /home/paincl5/public_html/logbook/logbook.php:110 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in /home/paincl5/public_html/logbook/logbook.php on line 110


The code at line 110 is

unset($pdo);


My full code is:

<div class="wrapper">
<div class="container-fluid">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-12">
<div class="page-header clearfix">
<h2 class="pull-left">Logbook Patients</h2>
<a href="create.php" class="btn btn-success pull-right" >Add New Patient</a>


</div>
<?php
// Include config file

// Attempt select query execution
$sql = "SELECT * FROM main";
if($result = $pdo->query($sql)){
if($result->rowCount() > 0){

You are destroying your $pdo variable with unset($pdo) so any subsequent calls are trying to run methods against a null object.

Try removing references to that unset.

I'm assuming that the $pdo object is coming from config.php. Since you're using require_once, it will only include the config file the first time the require_once is called. That's why the $pdo is destroyed and not recreated.
