Multiple inserts with MySQL/PHP


You want to insert multiple records in a MySQL table (in a loop, for instance). How to improve the performance?

Solution #1

One way is to regroup all the inserts in one SQL command:

 ('1', 'one'),
 ('2', 'two'),
 ('3', 'three')

Solution #2

Another way is to regroup the inserts in a transaction:

mysql_query("START TRANSACTION");
mysql_query("INSERT ...");
mysql_query("INSERT ...");
mysql_query("INSERT ...");
mysql_query("COMMIT");   // or "ROLLBACK" if you changed your mind

Credits go here.
