check if exist

Recommended Posts

 $email_check = $GLOBALS['db']->select('CubeCart_customer', array('customer_id'), array('email' => $customer['email']));
        if($email_check && $email_check[0]['customer_id']!==$_POST['customer_id'] {
            $customer_updated = false;
        } elseif (($GLOBALS['db']->update('CubeCart_customer', $customer, array('customer_id' => $_POST['customer_id']))) !== false) {
            if((int)$customer['status']===0) $GLOBALS['db']->delete('CubeCart_sessions', array('customer_id' => (int)$_POST['customer_id']));
            $customer_updated = true;

does this check all entry in database if email exists ?

"check all entry in database"

Generally, the "database" is the entire collection of tables (and views, procedures, etc) that an application uses, and that collection is given a name.

That said, the code above is querying just one table contained in that database.

So, all records of that specified table will be inspected to find the occurrences where 'email' contains the given value. But other tables will not be inspected.

I notice that the first "if" test is making an tight negative comparison of customer_id values. So, if they do not match, show a banner saying that the email exists.

I believe that is not your intent.

Please know that POSTed values are always given to PHP as the type "string". And, for the database result, for 'customer_id', it may be the type "integer". Thus, the tight comparison (value and data type) in the above code will fail.
