<?php
if(isset($_POST['submit']) && $_POST['g-recaptcha-response']!="")
{
 include "db.php";
 $secret = 'You Site Key';
 $verifyResponse = file_get_contents('https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api/siteverify?secret='.$secret.'&response='.$_POST['g-recaptcha-response']);
 $responseData = json_decode($verifyResponse);
 if($responseData->success)
 {
  $name = $_POST['name'];
  $email = $_POST['email'];
  $pass = $_POST['password'];
  
  mysqli_query($conn, "INSERT INTO users(name, email ,password) VALUES('" . $_POST['name'] . "', '" . $_POST['email'] . "', '" . md5($_POST['password']) . "')");
  echo "User registration form with captcha validation has been successfully saved";
 }
}
