What you need to do is to pass to the LIMIT clause the $first and $limit
values where the $first is the number of the page of results you want to
display times the number records you want to see per page which is also the

Maybe you want to look at Metabase which is a PHP database abstraction page
that lets you specify the range of rows that you want to retrieve pretty
much like the LIMIT clause, except that it works well in all supported
databases including PostgreSQL versions that did not support the LIMIT


With Metabase you may use this other PHP query result table display class
that is able to display query result rows in HTML tables with optional
links to go to the next, previous, first, last, etc...  result pages.  It
uses MetabaseSetSelectedRowRange($database,$first,$limit) function to
choose the rows that it displays in each page.
