Making changes to databases in phpmyadmin but they are not reflecting on my site

Hi there,

My site allows users to input certain contact information into a database. One of the fields is currently market as “required” but I wanted to change it. I went into phpmyadmin and updated the field to be “null” but the changes are not reflecting on the live site.

Is there something I also need to do inside cpanel file manager to make sure the changes happened or configuring something together?

Hey there! I wouldn't expect changes made on the database side to reflect the forms that are shown on the web site side of things. While the field might be "null" for the table entry, that wouldn't change what information is being shown on the page for the user to enter. That would also need to be edited on the website form by the designer of the site. Can you have them look into that?
