PHP | Return User Type Name and ID


I want to display user type (admin/ employee) & permissionId after they login, how do I do so?

user: userId, username, userpassword

  • 1, peterparker, 123

  • 2, tonystark, 123

permission: permissionId, permissionName

  • 1, admin
  • 2, user

permission_user: id, userId, permissionId

  • 1, 2, 1
  • 2, 1, 2

For permissionId, I have the following code:

include ("");  
$userId = $_SESSION["usersid"];  
$sql = "SELECT permissionId from permission_user WHERE userId = '$userId'";  
$result = mysqli_query($conn, $sql);

After that, I am not too sure what syntax is to display the result. For instance, based on the dummy data provided above, we know that Tony Stark is an admin, hence I want it to display “1” which stands for admin.
