Need help with HttpService:RequestAsync and MySQL Database

Hey, I want to get informations from my MySQL Database and print it in Roblox.
This is my current DataBase :

So this is my current Roblox Script that ask my PHP page for informations :

	local function request()
		local response = HttpService:RequestAsync(
				Url = "MyWebPage",  -- This website helps debug HTTP requests
				Method = "POST",
				Headers = {
					["Content-Type"] = "application/json"  -- When sending JSON, set this!
				Body = HttpService:JSONEncode({Request = "PlayerInformations"})
		-- Inspect the response table
		if response.Success then
			print("Status code:", response.StatusCode, response.StatusMessage)
			print("Response body:\n", response.Body)
			print("The request failed:", response.StatusCode, response.StatusMessage)
		-- wrap the function in a 'pcall' to prevent the script from breaking if the request fails
	local success, message = pcall(request)
	if not success then
		print("Http Request failed:", message)

And I think that where I need help here is how to post back the infomation to my game in PHP. This is my current PHP Code :

$servername = "localhost";
$username = "username ";
$password = "password";
$dbname = "dbname ";

// Connect to MySQLI and ask it to throw exceptions

	$conn = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
}catch(mysqli_sql_exception $e){
	print("Database connection error: " . $e->getMessage());

// Fetch the payload from Roblox
$payload = json_decode(file_get_contents("php://input"), true);

if (empty($payload)){
	print("Payload from Roblox is empty. No data was received.");
	$Request = $payload['Request'];
	if (isset($Request)){
		// Check if Request Exist
		if ($Request == "PlayerInformations"){
			$array = array();
			$result = $conn->query("SELECT * FROM `Players`");
			$count = 0;
			while ($row = $result->fetch_assoc()){
				$array["$count"] = $PlayerID;
			echo json_encode($array);

		print("No Request was received.");

Can I send a Json file to my game or I can only Read what I Print in PHP from the response.Body ?
Right now in my Roblox Console this is what I get

  Status code: 200 OK
  Response body:
1 Like

Here’s a gist example of retrieving info from MySQL and returning the JSON data:

I’m not a PHP programmer, so I couldn’t really explain what’s going on there, but hopefully that could be of some help. When you get the data back on Roblox’s end, you’ll need to run it through HttpService:JSONDecode in order to transform it from JSON to a Lua table.


Thanks ! I only needed to add that :smiley:
