    Click view all, then start from the last page at the bottom (they're in reverse order).


    I believe that mysqli is just a component of PHP that works with any MySQL database-- so, yes, this will probably work with your system. There's no harm in trying.


    As for mysqli "versus" mysql, I suggest reading a bit (just look around google). Basically they're the same thing and work in mostly identical ways, except that mysqli is "improved" in a few ways or at least it's said to be. There's no harm in using it (except that it's not as common as mysql), though many/most? designers still use mysql, perhaps just by habit.


    Note: I have deleted your other duplicate post-- please only post a question once.
