Charles Rowe's Blog:
The Four Major Benefits of MySQLi
June 19, 2007 @ 11:03:00

Charles Rowe shares four reasons/benefits he's come up with that should make you think about choosing MySQLi over the normal MySQL libraries for PHP for your application.

There still seems to be a lot of confusion over the differences between the two extensions despite the length of time that mysqli has been in the wild. I wanted to briefly review the four major benefits of mysqli.

Here's the list

  • Prepared Statements
  • Secure MySQL connections
  • Multi query
  • Object Oriented Interface

He also includes a few more links to further information (besides the explanation for each of the topics listed above) including an article from the Zend Developer Zone and a tutorial covering making the switch to MySQLi.
