Insert HTML data into table in MySql


I have an HTML file which i would want to insert into a table as a single row.

I am currently using LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE ‘/var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/app/index.html’ INTO TABLE html_sample

but it is storing each as individual row in the table.

Is there anyway to store the entire html file as a single row?


Hi @Amrutha I’m not sure how many Tomcat users there are in this forum, so I would suggest you ask in a Tomcat forums instead - have a look in

Hello there,

I recently had to do the same thing. What I did was to incode the HTML into base64. I think it’s the safest scenario. There might be other solutions but I think this might be the cleanest approach:

String originalInput = "test input";
String encodedString = Base64.getEncoder().encodeToString(originalInput.getBytes());
/* insert to database */

I hope that this helps you the same way it helped me!
