php-mysql user creation problem

 3:01 am on Aug 2, 2009 (gmt 0)


my case is i am trying to create one member database whose column username must be unique (I have made the required changes in table attribute so that it does not allow the duplicate entries to be inserted in)
Now my problem is when user fails to create an account with existing username how can I inform him that same username exists and he needs to choose different username. I mean mysql_query() function return anything using which we can figure out what same username exists in database apart from insert is failed.

mysql_query will return false if the insert did not work, however, if you want to let the user know before the query they you are going to have to make a separate query to check for availability.
