DB Facade has some nice helper functions for doing things like database inserts/updates etc.
insert call looks something like this:
DB::insert('insert into users (id, name) values (?, ?)', [1, 'Dayle']);
You specify a list of fields, placeholders for values, then an array of the actual values.
Laravel passes this down to the PDO layer and it ultimately becomes a PDO prepared-statement so you don't have to worry about SQL injection errors.
Now let's say you have something like this
$record = [ "id" => 1, "name" => "Dayle", ]; DB::insert('insert into users (id, name) values (?, ?)', $record);
This is going to throw a
PDOException. More specifically, a PDOException - General error: 2031.
A 2031 error means that binding the values to the placeholders in the PDO prepared-statement failed.
In this case, it's because the function can't handle an array with values and keys.
The fix is
DB::insert('insert into users (id, name) values (?, ?)', array_values($record));
