To calculate the total in CodeIgniter using MySQL, you can use the query builder provided by CodeIgniter to execute SQL queries against the database. Here is an example of how you can calculate the total of a column in a table:

1
2
3
4
$this->db->select_sum('column_name');
$query = $this->db->get('table_name');
$result = $query->row();
$total = $result->column_name;


In this example, 'column_name' is the name of the column for which you want to calculate the total, and 'table_name' is the name of the table in which the column is located.


You can then use the $total variable to display the calculated total wherever needed in your CodeIgniter application.
