The mysqli driver exists since php 5.0, PDO since 5.1. And the old mysql stuff exists since php 2.0 (I can not find the web page again, where all three implementations where shown together…). So if there does not exist any php version out there lower than version 5.0, it might be okay to use mysqli, right? :)

Here is some link I just found:

It also seems that I have to tweak error handling for mysqli. I will modify the repute.php to refelect the examples from exactly this link. And I will send it to you later.

Kind regards
