mysql vs mysqli
September 25, 2013 07:02PM
Just wanted to check - seeing that mysql is going to be removed from php and replaced by mysqli, is it okay if we use mysqli in our project?
I know the tutorials used the mysql but seeing that it is going to be removed I'd prefer to learn the mysqli so long but not sure if it will run correctly on the server our projects will be tested on?

Anybody else using this?

mysqli is compatible with mySql 4.1 and later.

EasyPHP is currently installed with mySql 5.6.11,and XAMPP with mySql 5.5.32, so there should not be any compatibility problems.

Strictly speaking you can just as well use PDO which is newer and recommended for new development (5.1 required I think)... but let us not run too far ahead here. It is all about portability. the "older" connect will still work. This is an introductory course smiling smiley
