Check whether image exists on remote server

Here is example to verify whether given image exists on server or not. For that we can use PHP inbuilt function get_headers() .

get_headers — Fetches all the headers sent by the server in response to an HTTP request. get_headers function return an array with the headers sent by the server in response to a HTTP request.


$url = "";

function checkImageExist($url){
$headers = get_headers($url, 1);
if (strpos($headers['Content-Type'], 'image/') !== false) {
} else {
return $status;

The output of the get_headers function:

    [0] => HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    [x-amz-id-2] => c/RpQuXgUvK8Fv6zMa2XIwjYfBMooqSmLBrbfyFRhfmEplvtZht0nI8iHxuQk7DysAFPlagkk6A=

      allowClear: true,
      placeholder: "Pick a State"

    //Select2 Event handler for selecting an item
    $('select').on("select2:selecting", function(evt, f, g) {
      disableSel2Group(evt, this, true);

    // Select2 Event handler for unselecting an item
    $('select').on("select2:unselecting", function(evt) {
      disableSel2Group(evt, this, false);

  // At some point during the select2 instantation it created the 
  // data object it needs with the source select option.
  // This function, called by the events above to set the current status for the
  // group for which the selected option belongs.
  function disableSel2Group(evt, target, disabled) {
    // Found a note in the Select2 formums on how to get the item to be selected

    var selId =;
    var group = $("option[value='" + selId + "']").attr("groupid");

    var aaList = $("option", target);
    $.each(aaList, function(idx, item) {
      var data = $(item).data("data");

      var itemGroupId = $("option[value='" + + "']").attr("groupid");
      if (itemGroupId == group && != selId) {
        data.disabled = disabled;

MySQL Select query to validate email

MySQL supports another type of pattern matching operation based on the regular expressions, REGEXP operator used for pattern matching.

SELECT * FROM `users`,
WHERE `email` REGEXP '^[A-Z0-9._%-]+@[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,63}$';

And now for your question of tracking multiple tables, you can use comma seperated table names right?

SELECT * FROM `users`, `customers`, `clients`
         WHERE `email` NOT REGEXP '^[A-Z0-9._%-]+@[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,63}$';
