Thanks to the answers I have figured out that I am unable to use fetch_all() because i am using PHP 5.2.17 - fetch_assoc with while loop worked.

The function I am using fetch_all is coming back with this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method mysqli_result::fetch_all() in

$mysqli = new mysqli($host, $username, $password, $database);
$query = "LONG QUERY that works, tested in phpmyadmin"
$result = $mysqli->query($query);
$result->fetch_all(); or  $mysqli->fetch_all() tried both
mysqli_fetch_all() was already tried.

I am able to connect to the DB and I have pulled single rows. When I place the query in PHPMYADMIN I get 5 rows back.

Does this function even work? Is there a way I can place my data into an assoc array on my own?



This function is available since PHP 5.3.0. Possibly your version is older. Use fetch_assoc() instead.

while ($row = $result->fetch_assoc()) {
    // do what you need.

I went ahead and ran a test where one query uses a prepared statement, and the other builds the entire query then executes that. I'm probably not making what I'm wanting to know easy to understand.

Here's my test code. I was thinking prepared statements sort of held back execution until a $stmt->close() was called to optimize it or something. That doesn't appear to be the case though as the test that builds the query using real_escape_string is at least 10 times faster.


$db = new mysqli('localhost', 'user', 'pass', 'test');

$start = microtime(true);
$a = 'a';
$b = 'b';

$sql = $db->prepare('INSERT INTO multi (a,b) VALUES(?, ?)');
$sql->bind_param('ss', $a, $b);
for($i = 0; $i < 10000; $i++)
    $a = chr($i % 1);
    $b = chr($i % 2);

echo microtime(true) - $start;

This actually depends on the Mysql server. The default max size for all data combined in the entire query is 1mb. See:

If your data combined is under that "max_allowed_packet" threshold, just use "s" for the binding type for any text field. Infact, you can usually get away with using "s" for any field type at all (date, float, etc).

If your entire entry combined that you want to insert is over 1mb (or whatever you reset it to) in length, you'll want to use mysqli_stmt::send_long_data method and the "b" binding type to send this particular field in chunks.

You should split your code in some more lines to handle those errors or special cases. mysql_query will return zero to n rows or an error if it occurs. The returned resource will therefore only be true on non-error queries. This can be used to handle such situations like follows.

At first build and execute query, next process the resource.

$query="SELECT COUNT(user_id) FROM users WHERE username = ".$username;
$result = mysql_query($query);  

u may use the following to determine what is going on in case of an error:

if(!$result) die("SELECT failed: ".mysql_error());

or these idea to handle the problem

if (!$result=mysql_query($query)) {
        return false; // or similar operation

    if (mysql_num_rows($result)!=1){
        return false;
        return true;

The problem is with PHP variable scoping. Add this line inside of allServers() function before you refer to the $link variable for the first time:

global $link;
