In this post, I would like to share how to get or echo the last executed query in CodeIgniter application, Sometimes in your application, you want to debug and get the last executed query, you can get the last executed query using last_query() function in CodeIgniter. In CodeIgniter application you use the query builder with a group by, order by limit functions that time you don't get the whole query, to get the full query use the function last_query();

The below example demonstrates how to print the last query.



defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');

class Home_Model extends CI_Model {

    public function get_all_users() {
        $result = $this->db->get("users")->result();
        echo $this->db->last_query();
        return $result;



SELECT * FROM `users`
In get_all_users() function, we have printed the last query, which will print the query in sql format.
