I am not talking about their advantages. I am new here and trying to submit my first php script…so if you would share your experience with pdo that would be most helpful What buyers want? PDO?
Just trying to understand the environment here Thanks in advance!
My understanding is that the PHP mysqli extension will be removed in a future version of PHP.
I highly recommend that you use PDO for any PHP project from now on. PDO allows bound parameters (improved security) and it makes it easier to connect to different database systems.
I was writing PHP apps in 2008 with PDO and it has served me well.
EDIT: All my apps here on CodeCanyon use PDO.
