    Are there any php OOP gurus hanging around here?
    I just started messing around with with it, and i have a few questions about it.

    Ill start with one:
    1) How do i properly use a database class? When i google for it there are millions of options so i dont know what is right and what is wrong.

    Can anyone help me out?

    You can use PDO or MySQLI method to connect to database and querying is supported well for PHP OOP method.

    Is this question about OOP in PHP or is this about use of PDO?

    Or should we be asking why we’re suddenly contributing to a conversation that’s been abandoned since the beginning of 2009?

    @chathula, there’s at least one other thread you posted in that hadn’t been active for several years. The conversation is dead. Even if you have a similar question, it is best to start a new conversation.

    that date def. needs to be prominent.

    yeah, it’s pretty easy to overlook. But I’m assuming @chathula found this thread by searching the site —it’s best to make date-checking a habit in cases like that.

    Hey OP i’m in similar situation. I know basics of PHP and started learning PHP OOP while ago. I can’t recommend highly enough Matt Zandstras book “PHP objects, Patterns, and Practice“. If one does not learn OOP with this book all hope is gone.

    What comes to accessing databases i would say use PDO class. Yes, its bit slower than native MySQLI, but once you fully understand PDO you can use it with all other databases as well. MySQL is dying (not anytime soon, but sooner or later) so it wiser to put your bets on horse that will win in longer run.

    EDIT: Just noticed OP date. scratching head
