If onlinestoptime is null then check for null, not a wildcard matching any string.


What is the data type of the onlinestarttime field, is it a text type like varchar or is a date/time type?


You really need to use prepared statements with PDO instead of the mysql extension, your code will not work in PHP 7.

There's a PDO tutorial here, there are many others online if you do a search:




It looks like your query has a syntax error, but you're not checking for errors. With PDO you should set it up to throw an exception when there's an error so you can see them.
