My site is rather extensive, and I just recently made the switch to PHP5 (call me a late bloomer).
All of my MySQL query's before were built as such:
"SELECT * FROM tablename WHERE field1 = 'value' && field2 = 'value2'";
This made it very easy, simple and friendly.
I am now trying to make the switch to mysqli for obvious security reasons, and I am having a hard time figuring out how to implement the same
SELECT * FROM queries when the
bind_param requires specific arguments.
Is this statement a thing of the past?
If it is, how do I handle a query with tons of columns involved? Do I really need to type them all out every time?
