Project Description

I have a PHP project which has around 542 occurrences of the mysql_query function.

These need to be rewritten using the corresponding MySQLi methods and prepared statements.

To give an example ($dbh is a PDO object that is available to you in every file):

Rewrite this:

$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE id LIKE '$id' LIMIT 1";

$result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);

To this:

$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE id LIKE :id LIMIT 1";

$stmt = $dbh->prepare($sql);

$stmt->execute(array(':id' => $id));

$row = $stmt->fetch();

If you have any questions let me know.
