But if I ignore PHP's default transaction and specify a transaction that I
create/control for every query/execute etc then this is ok, yes/no?

TBH I seem to have most of what I wanted in terms of update select data done

api at the moment whilst I'm learning the language.

I have always worked this way with delphi, I prefer to control the
transactions rather than relying on the global transaction.

I still don't know if you are doing page scripts or free standing
scripts,... but if page scripts, then just watch out for when you want to
issue a "Location" command. You must have already committed or rollback as
