How To Create Unique 10-digit Random Alphanumeric Codes?

How can I create unique 10-digit random alphanumeric codes, such as 87i6se3Hfs or 7Gjg668dOh, etc?

I know I probably could have a loop that runs 10 times to get this code, but how can I be sure it's unique everytime? And it should have some kind of a security that keeps people from changing one of two digits/letters to get another valid code. It's like a checksum on your credit card number, I guess.

Random Alphanumeric Generator To Return A Unique Booking Reference Doesn't Work

A user registers the learners details. At this point I use a Random Alphanumeric Generator to return a unique booking reference which is used at the checkout to bring back all the details of their booking. However, sometimes it doesn't seem to work. When I look at the database I see that (in one example) it has generated the same alphanumeric value which is why at the checkout it returns more than what the person thought they had booked. Here's the code for the generator...

function randomPrefix($length)
$random= "";
$data .= "aBCdefghijklmn123opq45rs67tuv89wxyz";
$data .= "0FGH45OP89";

Short Alphanumeric String

Generate Randomized Alphanumeric String

I am off trying to see if I can create a ticket reservation system, where a visitor should be able to reserve tickets and get a randomized unique alphanumeric string in uppercase letters with a total of 8 characters.

I do not know how to create a script that randomizes letters, from A-Z, and puts it into a string only 8 characters long. To compare it with already stored "randomized" in a database, I guess it is only to do a search in the database.

Anyone who has a good advice or script on how to generate what I would like to


I guess you all know what I am after.

Produce An Short Alphanumeric String From A Long Md5 Hash?

This is for the purpose of having a nice short URL which refers to an md5 hash in a database. I would like to convert something like this:


into something like this:


Those both contain about the same amount of information. The method doesn't have to be direct and reversible but that would be nice (more flexible). At the least I would want a randomly generated string with the hex hash as the seed so it is reproducible. I'm sure there are many possible answers, I am curious to see how people would do it in an elegant way. this doesn't have to have perfect 1:1 correspondence with the original hash but that would be a bonus (I guess I already implied that with the reversibility criteria). And I would like to avoid collisions if possible.
