This is home page of your project. Here you need to upload your CSV file. And submit. 
<form name="import_export_form" method="post" action="subImport.php" enctype="multipart/form-data"
<p>Import file : <input type="file" name="excelfile[]" required/></p>
    <input name="sub" type="submit" value="Submit">


This is very important part. First we have seen excel_reader.php which is read any CSV file. So you have to include these file. Next line you have to check any CSV file is set or not. If any file is set then using foreach loop you can get all the details of the CSV file.

Next you have to create a object, Using IOFactory.php, create your object and count how many rows inside the CSV file. We need to remove first row of the CSV file which is title. And others row data we have to insert into MySQL database. So using for loop we are going to insert all data into database accept first row. So, we set $i=2.

require_once 'Classes/excel_reader.php';
include 'Classes/PHPExcel/IOFactory.php';

if(isset($_FILES['excelfile'])) {
    $errors= array();
    foreach($_FILES['excelfile']['tmp_name'] as $key => $tmp_name ){
        $name = $_FILES['excelfile']['name'][$key];
        $file_size =$_FILES['excelfile']['size'][$key];
        $file1 =$_FILES['excelfile']['tmp_name'][$key];
        $str = explode(".",$name);
        $fname = $str[0];
        $exe = $str[1];
        // This is the file path to be uploaded.
        try {
            $objPHPExcel = PHPExcel_IOFactory::load($file1);
        } catch(Exception $e) {
            die('Error loading file "'.pathinfo($inputFileName,PATHINFO_BASENAME).'": '.$e->getMessage());
        $allDataInSheet = $objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->toArray(null,true,true,true);
        $arrayCount = count($allDataInSheet);  // Here get total count of row in that Excel sheet
                $name = trim($allDataInSheet[$i]["A"]);
                $phone = trim($allDataInSheet[$i]["B"]);
                $email = trim($allDataInSheet[$i]["C"]);
                mysql_query("INSERT INTO `import_data` (`name`, `phone`, `email`) VALUES ('$name', '$phone', '$email')");
           }  //END FOR  
    }  // END FOREACH    




Create MySQL table lets say import.
 `name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
 `Phone` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
 `email` varchar(50) NOT NULL,


Database connectivity.  
    error_reporting(E_ALL && ~E_NOTICE);

    $conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "");
    if(!$conn) die("Failed to connect to database!");
    $status = mysql_select_db('import', $conn);
    if(!$status) die("Failed to select database!");
