[Contribution] MySQLi Extension for OsC 2.X


Recommended Posts

Native MySQL extension is slightly faster than the improved MySQLi extension, but the latest more stable and have more features.


This addon simply replicate the default database function, so you don't have to worry that you need to edit many files. The installation process as easy as uploading a file (database_mysqli.php) and edit one line in application.top.php.


As a bonus, this addon add new tep_db_multi_query function (see: mysqli.multi-query.php), so now you can make multi query in one call.


Sample of using "tep_db_multi_query" can be found in the archive.

Hi Parikesit,


I found that by changing the last line in admin/includes/configure.php file from: define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');


to: define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysqli');


then this works. Hope this helps.
