I have tried everything to get a piece of code to work. When you assign an object to a variable, there remains just a single object, whereas the second variable being just a reference to it. While named placeholders make your code more verbose, they allow random binding order. Note that you should be using prepared statements to avoid silly syntax errors caused by the data - it goes without saying. Quite contrary, catching an exception should be rather an exceptional case pun intended.
So, an extra sanitization won't make too much sense. Updation The complete code for update function is given below. Multiple execution Sometimes you can use prepared statements for the multiple execution of a prepared query.

If your updates will run unexpectedly slow, then it's your database settings to blame. I have to say that I did not understand the code example you use to explain how to use 'like' with pdo. Without the transaction it was taking over 150 seconds, and with it only 3.
I have this line in my connection code already, but I did add your line to the new script. The former one has to be preferred, because, unlike bindParam it has no side effects to deal with. Relatively new to php and mysql. In some circumstances it will greatly speed up the inserts, and it makes sense overall, to make sure that either all data has been added or none.

Tutorials, references, and examples are constantly reviewed to avoid errors, but we cannot warrant full correctness of all content. After analysis of some requests it turns out that it is the extraction of the data which is extremely long.
