Question

Solution

As Wordpress is developped using PHP, I suppose you could use any PHP functions/classes, as long as the corresponding extension is installed on your server.

See the Database Extensions section of the manual for a list of extensions that can be used to connect to different kinds of database systems.


If you are using MySQL, I would suggest the mysqli extension -- at least if installed on your server ; it's more recent, and support more features, than the old mysql one.

PDO can be a good choice too -- and works with both MySQL and other database systems.
