Thanks for your help, but I just found out how. All I did was do
SELECT username FROM users WHERE username='$blah'
and count the number of rows. If it was >= 1, then it would return an error, else it would process it.
Basically I have a user signup/login system on a MySQL backend. However, visitors can sign up multiple times with the same username. How would I get MySQL to check if there already exists the username in the database?
The table is like this
id username password email
1 blahblahb blahblah...
