About preceding note, you shouldn't use pg_num_rows() for this.
You should have instead a look at pg_affected_rows().

As mentioned, if you are performing an INSERT/UPDATE or DELETE query and want to know the # of rows affected, you should use pg_affected_rows() instead of pg_num_rows().

However, you can also exploit postgres's RETURNING clause in your query to auto-select columns from the affected rows.  This has the advantage of being able to tell not only how many rows a query affects, but exactly which rows those were, especially if you return a primary-key column.

For example:


// Example query.  Let's say that this updates five rows in the source table.
$res = pg_query("Update foo set bar = 'new data' where = 'old data' ");
pg_num_rows($res); // 0
pg_affected_rows($res); // 5
pg_fetch_all($res); // FALSE

// Same query, with a RETURNING clause.
$res = pg_query("Update foo set bar = 'new data' where = 'old data' RETURNING foo.pkey");
pg_num_rows($res); // 5
pg_affected_rows($res); // 5
pg_fetch_all($res); // Multidimensional array corresponding to our affected rows & returned columns

Not sure why this documentation doesn't have the following note:
Note: Use pg_affected_rows() to get number of rows affected by INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE query.

Found on other resources. Adding here in case someone else is looking for the info.
