mysqli::query

mysqli_query

(PHP 5)

mysqli::query -- mysqli_queryExécute une requête sur la base de données

Description

Style orienté objet

mixed mysqli::query ( string $query [, int $resultmode = MYSQLI_STORE_RESULT ] )

Style procédural

mixed mysqli_query ( mysqli $link , string $query [, int $resultmode = MYSQLI_STORE_RESULT ] )

Exécute une requête sur la base de données.

Pour les requêtes non-DML (qui n'est pas un INSERT, un UPDATE ou un DELETE), cette fonction est similaire à appeler à appeler mysqli_real_query() suivie de mysqli_use_result() ou mysqli_store_result().

Note:

Si vous passez une requête à mysqli_query() qui est plus longue que max_allowed_packet, les codes d'erreur en retour seront différents selon si vous utilisez MySQL Native Driver (mysqlnd) ou la MySQL Client Library (libmysqlclient). Le comportement est défini comme suit:

  • mysqlnd sur Linux retourne un code d'erreur de 1153. Le message d'erreur sera "got a packet bigger than max_allowed_packet bytes".

  • mysqlnd sur Windows retourne un code d'erreur de 2006. Le message sera du type "server has gone away".

  • libmysqlclient sur toute plateforme retourne le code d'erreur 2006. Le message sera du type "server has gone away".

Liste de paramètres

link

Seulement en style procédural : Un identifiant de lien retourné par la fonction mysqli_connect() ou par la fonction mysqli_init()

query

La requête, sous la forme d'une chaîne de caractères.

Les données contenues dans la requête doivent être échappées.

resultmode

Soit la constante MYSQLI_USE_RESULT, soit la constante MYSQLI_STORE_RESULT, suivant le comportement désiré. Par défaut, la constante MYSQLI_STORE_RESULT est utilisé.

Si vous utilisez la constante MYSQLI_USE_RESULT, tous les appels suivants retourneront une erreur Commands out of sync tant que vous n'aurez pas appelé la fonction mysqli_free_result().

Avec la constante MYSQLI_ASYNC (disponible avec mysqlnd), il est possible de faire des requêtes asynchrone. mysqli_poll() est alors utilisé pour lire les résultats de ce type de requêtes.

Valeurs de retour

Retourne FALSE en cas d'échec. Pour des requêtes SELECT, SHOW, DESCRIBE ou EXPLAIN réussies, mysqli_query() retournera un objet mysqli_result. Pour les autres types de requêtes ayant réussies, mysqli_query() retournera TRUE.

The cryptic "Couldn't fetch mysqli" error message can mean any number of things, including:

1. You're trying to use a database object that you've already closed (as noted by ceo at l-i-e dot com). Reopen your database connection, or find the call to <?php mysqli_close($db); ?> or <?php $db->close(); ?> and remove it.
2. Your MySQLi object has been serialized and unserialized for some reason. Define a wakeup function to re-create your database connection. http://php.net/__wakeup
3. Something besides you closed your mysqli connection (in particular, see http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=33772)
4. You mixed OOP and functional calls to the database object. (So, you have <?php $db->query() ?> in the same program as <?php mysqli_query($db) ?>).

This may or may not be obvious to people but perhaps it will help someone.

When running joins in SQL you may encounter a problem if you are trying to pull two columns with the same name. mysqli returns the last in the query when called by name. So to get what you need you can use an alias.

Below I am trying to join a user id with a user role. in the first table (tbl_usr), role is a number and in the second is a  text name (tbl_memrole is a lookup table). If I call them both as role I get the text as it is the last "role" in the query. If I use an alias then I get both as desired as shown below.

<?php
$sql
= "SELECT a.uid, a.role AS roleid, b.role,
            FROM tbl_usr a
            INNER JOIN tbl_memrole b
            ON a.role = b.id
            "
;

    if (
$result = $mysqli->query($sql)) {
        while(
$obj = $result->fetch_object()){
           
$line.=$obj->uid;
           
$line.=$obj->role;
           
$line.=$obj->roleid;
        }
    }
   
$result->close();
    unset(
$obj);
    unset(
$sql);
    unset(
$query);
   
?>
In this situation I guess I could have just renamed the role column in the first table roleid and that would have taken care of it, but it was a learning experience.

I like to save the query itself in a log file, so that I don't have to worry about whether the site is live.

For example, I might have a global function:

<?php
function UpdateLog ( $string , $logfile )  {
  
$fh = fopen ( $logfile , 'a' );
  
$fwrite ( $fh , strftime ('%F %T %z')." ".$string."\n";
  
fclose ( $fh );
}
?>

Then in my mysql function error trapper, something like this:

<?php
   $error_msg
= "Database error in [page].php / ";
  
$error_msg .= mysqli_error ( $link )." / ";
  
$error_msg .= $query;
  
UpdateLog ( $error_msg , DB_ERROR_LOG_FILE );
?>

I also include the remote IP, user agent, etc., but I left it out of these code samples.  And have it e-mail me when an error is caught, too.

Translation:
"Couldn't fetch mysqli"

You closed your connection and are trying to use it again.

It has taken me DAYS to figure out what this obscure error message means...

mysqli::query() can only execute one SQL statement.

Use mysqli::multi_query() when you want to run multiple SQL statements within one query.

When calling multiple stored procedures, you can run into the following error: "Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now".
This can happen even when using the close() function on the result object between calls.
To fix the problem, remember to call the next_result() function on the mysqli object after each stored procedure call. See example below:

<?php
// New Connection
$db = new mysqli('localhost','user','pass','database');

// Check for errors
if(mysqli_connect_errno()){
echo
mysqli_connect_error();
}

// 1st Query
$result = $db->query("call getUsers()");
if(
$result){
    
// Cycle through results
   
while ($row = $result->fetch_object()){
       
$user_arr[] = $row;
    }
   
// Free result set
   
$result->close();
   
$db->next_result();
}

// 2nd Query
$result = $db->query("call getGroups()");
if(
$result){
    
// Cycle through results
   
while ($row = $result->fetch_object()){
       
$group_arr[] = $row;
    }
    
// Free result set
    
$result->close();
    
$db->next_result();
}
else echo(
$db->error);

// Close connection
$db->close();
?>

When building apps, i like to see the whole statement when if fails.
<?php
$q
="SELECT somecolumn FROM sometable"; //some instruction
$r=mysqli_query($DBlink,$q) or die(mysqli_error($DBlink)." Q=".$q);
?>
If theres an error (like my numerous typing mistakes) this shows the entire instruction.
Good for development (not so good on production servers - simply find and replace when finished: $r=mysqli_query($DBlink,$q); )

Hope it helps. Jon

Stored Procedures.

Use mysqli_query to call a stored procedure that returns a result set.

Here is a short example:

<?php
$mysqli
= new mysqli(DBURI,DBUSER,DBPASS,DBNAME);
if (
mysqli_connect_errno())
{
 
printf("Connection failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
  exit();
}

$SQL = "CALL my_procedure($something)";
if ( (
$result = $mysqli->query($SQL))===false )
{
 
printf("Invalid query: %s\nWhole query: %s\n", $mysqli->error, $SQL);
  exit();
}

while (
$myrow = $result->fetch_array(MYSQLI_ASSOC))
{
 
$aValue[]=$myrow["a"];
 
$bValue[]=$myrow["b"];
}
$result->close();
$mysqli->close();
?>
I hope this saves someone some time.

For those using with replication enabled on their servers,  add a mysqli_select_db() statement before any data modification queries.  MySQL replication does not handle statements with db.table the same and will not replicate to the slaves if a scheme is not selected before.

Found out after days of resetting master and slaves on another site http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-server-73/mysql-5-1-not-replicating-properly-with-slave-823296/

Hi, i created function that add  a new table using array , i work with it on my projects ...
<?PHP
                  
/* this function was learned from PHP.net */
function array_keys_exist(&$key,array &$array){
               
$keys = split("\|",$key);
                foreach(
$keys as $key_s){
                    if(
array_key_exists($key_s, $array)) return true;
                    }
                return
false;
            }
/*and this is my function */
array_create_table(array &$array){
        if(
is_array($array)){
          
$key = "table|rows|values";   
       
$info = "";
        if(
array_keys_exist($key,$array)){
        if(
is_array($array["rows"]) and is_array($array["values"]) ){
                                        
            if(
count($array["rows"]) == count($array["values"])) {
                        for(
$i=0; $i<=count($array["rows"]); $i++){
   
$info = $info." ".$array["rows"][$i]." ".$array["values"][$i]." NOT NULL ";
            if(
$i < count($array["rows"])-1 ) $info = $info.",";
                    }
   
$query = "CREATE TABLE ".$this->private_tables_name.$array["table"]." ";
   
$query .= "( id INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, ".$info." )";
                    return
$query;   
                        }
                        }
                }else return
"Error";
                    }
            }

/* the use is simple */
$database = new database(); // connection to database i used mysqli ...
$array = array("table"=>"MRO", "rows"=>array("name","username") , "values" => array("VARCHAR (50) "," VARCHAR (50) ") );

$query = array_create_table($array); // convert and create the query ...
if($database->query($query)) echo "Work"; else echo "Error"; // result : work

Building inserts can be annoying. This helper function inserts an array into a table, using the key names as column names:

<?php
 
private function store_array (&$data, $table, $mysqli)
  {
   
$cols = implode(',', array_keys($data));
    foreach (
array_values($data) as $value)
    {
      isset(
$vals) ? $vals .= ',' : $vals = '';
     
$vals .= '\''.$this->mysql->real_escape_string($value).'\'';
    }
   
$mysqli->real_query('INSERT INTO '.$table.' ('.$cols.') VALUES ('.$vals.')');
  }
?>

Adapt it to your specific needs.

Recently I had puzzling problem when performing DML queries, update in particular, each time a update query is called and then there are some more queries to follow this error will show on the page and go in the error_log:
"Fatal error:  Exception thrown without a stack frame in Unknown on line 0"

The strange thing is that all queries go through just fine so it didn't make much sense:

$update = mysqli_query($connection, $query_string);
if(!$update){
echo 'Houston we have a problem '.mysqli_error($connection);
exit;
}

In the above example "$update" is "true", mysqli_error() is empty and of course the update operation goes through, however the nasty super cryptic error appears on the page.
What makes even less sense to me is how I fixed it - just called "mysqli_free_result" after the update query and the problem was gone, however because mysqli_free_result is not supposed to be called after DML queries (to free what, a boolean? lol) it needs to be wrapped in a try catch block:

try{
mysqli_free_result($update);
}catch (Exception $e){
//do nothing
}

So, I don't know why but it seems that when DML queries are responsible for:
"Fatal error:  Exception thrown without a stack frame in Unknown on line 0"
calling "mysqli_free_result" after the query seems to be fixing the issue

this is a variant of mysqli_query that returns output parameters as a rowset.

<?php
 
function mysqli_exec($link, $command)
  {
     
$select = '';
     
$i2 = 0;
     
      while (
true)
      {
     
$i1 = strpos($command, '@', $i2);
     
      if (
$i1 === false)
          break;
         
     
$field = '';
     
$i2 = $i1 + 1;
     
      while (
$i2 < strlen($command) &&
          (
$command[$i2] >= '0' && $command[$i2] <= '9') ||
          (
$command[$i2] >= 'A' && $command[$i2] <= 'Z') ||
          (
$command[$i2] >= 'a' && $command[$i2] <= 'z') ||
          (
$command[$i2] == '_'))
         
$i2++;
         
     
$field = substr($command, $i1 + 1, $i2 - $i1 - 1);
         
      if (
strlen($select) == 0)
       
$select = "select @{$field} as $field";
      else                   
         
$select = $select . ", @{$field} as $field";
      }
     
      if (
strlen($select) > 0)
      {     
       
mysqli_query($link, $command);
        return
mysqli_query($link, $select);
      }
      else
        return
mysqli_query($link, $command);
  }
?>

an example:

<?php
  $link
= mysqli_connect('localhost', 'myusr', 'mypass') or die ('Error connecting to mysql: ' . mysqli_error($link));
 
mysqli_select_db($link, 'clips');
 
 
$user_name = 'test';
 
$result = mysqli_exec($link, "call do_user_login('$user_name', @session_id, @msg)");
 
  while (
$row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result))
  {
    echo
"session_id : {$row['session_id']} <br>";
    echo
"msg        : {$row['msg']} <br>";
  }

WARNING: This function was buggy on 64bit machines till 5.0.5. Affected versions 5.0.0-5.0.4. The problem appears when a value for the third parameter is passed - this will lead to instant FALSE returned by the function. Therefore if you need to use unbuffered query don't use this function with the aforementioned versions but you mysqli_real_query() and mysqli_use_result().
If you have the rights to patch you PHP installation the fix is easy:
In file ext/mysqli/myslqi_nonapi.c, function PHP_FUNCTION(mysqli_query)
change
unsigned int resultmode=0;
to
unsigned long resultmode=0;

Thanks!

Calling Stored Procedures

Beeners' note/example will not work. Use mysqli_multi_query() to call a Stored Procedure. SP's have a second result-set which contains the status: 'OK' or 'ERR'. Using mysqli_query will not work, as there are multiple results.

<?php
$sQuery
="CALL SomeSP('params')";
if(!
mysqli_multi_query($sqlLink,$sQuery)) {
 
// your error handler
}
$sqlResult=mysqli_store_result($sqlLink);

if(
mysqli_more_results($this->sqlLink))//Catch 'OK'/'ERR'
 
while(mysqli_next_result($this->sqlLink));
?>

You will have to rewrite/expand this a bit for more usability of course, but it's just an example.

Use difference collation/character for connect, result.
You can set the collation before your query.

E.g. want to set the collation to utf8_general_ci
you can send the query "SET NAMES 'utf8'" first

<?php
$mysqli
=new mysqli('localhost', 'root', 'password', 'test');
$mysqli->query("SET NAMES 'utf8'");
$q=$mysqli->query("select * from test");
while(
$r=$q->fetch_assoc()) {
   
print_r($r);
}
?>

There are many variables about character settings.
By running sql command, SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'char%';
There are some variables control the character usage.

character_set_client
character_set_connection
character_set_database
character_set_results
character_set_server
character_set_system

Also SET NAMES can repalce with one or some settings like SET character_set_results='utf8';

or you could just extend the class...
in my case i already had a wraper for the db so something like this was easy :

public function  free($result) {
 
  $result->free_result();
$this->link->next_result();
}

just tried it and it works like a charm ;-)
