I am not talking about their advantages. I am new here and trying to submit my first php script…so if you would share your experience with pdo that would be most helpful :) What buyers want? PDO?

Just trying to understand the environment here ;) Thanks in advance!

My understanding is that the PHP mysqli extension will be removed in a future version of PHP.

I highly recommend that you use PDO for any PHP project from now on. PDO allows bound parameters (improved security) and it makes it easier to connect to different database systems.

I was writing PHP apps in 2008 with PDO and it has served me well.

EDIT: All my apps here on CodeCanyon use PDO.
