Call Stored Procedure using Codeigniter

This tutorial will show you how to call stored procedure using Codeigniter framework.


Netbeans 8.2
XAMPP in Windows
Codeigniter 3.1.7

Go through below steps

Step 1. Create a table called user and Stored Procedure in MySQL database. Create database roytuts in MySQL server if it does not exist already.

  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `email` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  `phone` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL,
  `address` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)


Step 1. Create Stored Procedure in MySQL database. Create database roytuts in MySQL server if it does not exist already.


    PROCEDURE `roytuts`.`insertuser`(IN fullname VARCHAR(255), IN email VARCHAR(255), IN phone BIGINT, IN address VARCHAR(255))
		INSERT INTO USER(NAME,email,phone,address) VALUES(fullname,email,phone,address);



CALL insertuser('Soumitra Roy', '', 1234567890, '');

Step 2. Now first configure Codeigniter 3. with Netbeans 8.2 IDE if you have not configured already. Setup Codeigniter, Netbeans and XAMPP in Windows

Step 3. Open application/config/autoload.php file and autoload few things

$autoload['libraries'] = array('database', 'form_validation');
$autoload['helper'] = array('html', 'url', 'file', 'form');

Step 4. Open application/config/database.php file and make required changes for database configurations

'username' => 'root',
'password' => '',
'database' => 'roytuts',

If you have password for the database then put appropriate password.

Step 5. Create Model class for executing Stored Procedure


 * Description of User
 * @author
class UserModel extends CI_Model {

    function insert_user($name, $email, $phone, $address) {
        $insert_user_stored_proc = "CALL insertuser(?, ?, ?, ?)";
        $data = array('name' => $name, 'email' => $email, 'phone' => $phone, 'address' => $address);
        $result = $this->db->query($insert_user_stored_proc, $data);
        if ($result !== NULL) {
            return TRUE;
        return FALSE;


Step 6. Create Controller class


 * Description of User
 * @author
defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');

class UserController extends CI_Controller {

    function __construct() {

    public function index() {
        if ($this->input->post('submit')) {
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('name', 'Full Name', 'trim|required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('email', 'Email Address', 'trim|required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('phone', 'Phone No.', 'trim|required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('address', 'Contact Address', 'trim|required');

            if ($this->form_validation->run() !== FALSE) {
                $result = $this->usermodel->insert_user($this->input->post('user'), $this->input->post('email'), $this->input->post('phone'), $this->input->post('address'));
                $data['success'] = $result;
                $this->load->view('user', $data);
            } else {
        } else {


Step 7. Create View file for user input

defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');

        <div id="container">

                if (isset($success)) {
                    echo 'User record inserted';
                } else {
                    echo validation_errors();

                $attributes = array('name' => 'form', 'id' => 'form');
                echo form_open($this->uri->uri_string(), $attributes);

                <h5>Full Name</h5>
                <input type="text" name="name" value="" size="50" />

                <h5>Email Address</h5>
                <input type="text" name="email" value="" size="50" />

                <h5>Phone No.</h5>
                <input type="text" name="phone" value="" size="30" />

                <h5>Contact Address</h5>
                <textarea name="address" rows="5" cols="50"></textarea>

                <p><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"/></p>
                <?php echo form_close(); ?>

            <p class="footer">Page rendered in <strong>{elapsed_time}</strong> seconds. <?php echo (ENVIRONMENT === 'development') ? 'CodeIgniter Version <strong>' . CI_VERSION . '</strong>' : '' ?></p>


Step 8. Open file application/config/routes.php and change the default controller

$route['default_controller'] = 'usercontroller';

Step 9. Now run the application

When you see the form and you do not enter anything and try to submit the form

stored procedure using codeigniter

Once you fill the form with all input fields and you will find one row has been inserted into the database table and you will see the response above the form

User record inserted
