I have an array of values I want to store in a MySQL db in a column called
readBy of type TEXT. I want to take that array and serialize it then insert
it into the db. No big deal. When I query the db and get the value from the
readBy column, I know I have to unserialize it. Again, no big deal.

My question about all of this is once I unserialize the data from the
column, can I immediately use the array_push() function to append additional
data to the unserialized data? Will the unserialized data immediately be
recognized/treated as an array? Also, is the TEXT dolumn type an appropriate
column type to store serialized data or is there another column type that
should be used?

Lots of questions I know. Just wanted to make sure that it's really as easy
as unserialize() then array_push() with nothing else required.

Thanks in advance.
