[PHP] Trying to Play Catch-Up & get the Bigger Picture
A bit of a layman - general question trying to get the bigger picture...
It has been a few years since I have used PHP with MySQL database. I understand that the older original MySQL extension has been deprecated, In favor of MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extensions..
So the question is, big picture, What is the best way to interface with MySQL for this purpose? Would I use:
- PDO_MySQL (Am I correct in assuming that PDO is helpful if one may need to move to another database system in the future?)
- or maybe web services REST
- or ???
Any links to this general subject would be helpful/
