How to merge two or more arrays into one array in PHP

Topic: PHP / MySQL« Prev|Next »

Answer: Use the PHP array_merge() function

You can use the PHP array_merge() function to merge the elements or values of two or more arrays together into a single array. The merging is occurring in such a way that the values of one array are appended to the end of the previous array.

  • <?php
  • $array1 = array(1, "fruit" => "banana", 2, "monkey", 3);
  • $array2 = array("a", "b", "fruit" => "apple", "city" => "paris", 4, "c");
  • // Merging arrays together
  • $result = array_merge($array1, $array2);
  • print_r($result);
  • ?>

Note:If the input arrays contain the same string keys, then the later value for that key will overwrite the previous one.
