PHP Update page on POST

Question by Sami Dz Hamida

I have this little problem that when I POST something the page only updates after you refresh the page or change the page.


$1,000 -> (echo $money;)

    mysql_query("UPDATE users SET money=money+ '1000' WHERE username = '".$name."'");
    echo "You added $1,000 to your money";

“Money” will still say $1,000 unless I change page or refresh.

I’m sure it something so small but I just cant seem to find out how to do it.

Thank you in advanced.

Your code should work the way it is. Try this to confirm any errors

    $query = "UPDATE users SET money=money+ '1000' WHERE username = '".$name."'";
    $result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
    if($result) {
       echo "You added $1,000 to your money";
