What is PHP's MySQL Extension?
This is the original extension designed to allow you to develop PHP applications that interact with a MySQL database. The mysql extension provides a procedural interface and is intended for use only with MySQL versions older than 4.1.3. This extension can be used with versions of MySQL 4.1.3 or newer, but not all of the latest MySQL server features will be available.
Note: If you are using MySQL versions 4.1.3 or later it is strongly recommended that you use the mysqli extension instead.
The mysql extension source code is located in the PHP extension directory ext/mysql.
For further information on the mysql extension, see MySQL.
The MySQLi Extension (MySQL Improved) is a relational database driver used in the PHP programming language to provide an interface with MySQL databases. MySQLi is an improved version of the older PHP MySQL driver, offering various benefits. The developers of the PHP programming language recommend using MySQLi when dealing with MySQL server versions 4.1.3 or later.
