after i submit the form. i noticed that when i refresh the page that says for example "data inserted successfully", the data or information are being submitted again. It inserts the same information from the form to into my database.

So you mean to say you want user to show that instead of it is coming. I got that wrongly.

You have to submit the form to page where you insert the data in database and then show the message to the user.

if a user submitted the form and the user accidentally refreshed the page, it will insert the user's information twice to the database.

you mean redirect the page after the submit button was clicked?

Refresh button if you don't want user to be inserting the data once again you can use the username as unique so it will give you error.

u gt 'some' options
either use AJAX so the refresh doznt matter at all
or put the script in another page, i mean when data is submitted, the user is redirected to another page or redirected to the same page
