[PHP-DB] Getting last insert id?:
> Hi there everyone,
> I use the below to insert some data into my database:

>                VALUES ('$Postedby', '$email', '$subject', '$message', 
> '$ForumID','$posted','$parentid')

> But once it has done this, I need to get the id it has generated in

> Any help would be greatly appreciated :-)
