I agree with Stuart's analysis of failure causes and potential remedies. To
test the hypothesis that the share-nothing architecture of PHP is causing
the trouble, try adding a sleep() call to the first script and then within
the interval, call the second script. The tables should be locked.

Also, in terms of reads, I would suggest you could also provide a system
status update if a user is on a screen that is displaying data and the data
has changed, as you could prompt the user to refresh the page.

Happy coding!
