My PHP application uses a SQL Server 2000 database. I have previously
only ever used MySQL and so my knowledge of SQL Server comes just from
experimentation and trial and error experience.
My PHP application appears to be working fine but I have just discovered
that although the database itself is rather small on the disk (about
25MB) the transaction log file is huge (400MB). I have had a quick look
at Microsoft's website about large transaction files and they suggest
many reasons, one of which is the application not COMMITing
transactions. This is certainly true because I simply make INSERT and
UPDATE queries but don't include a COMMIT statement.
So my question is this: should I be COMMITing?
How do I do that? Do I simply run something like this after every
Please help - I feel like I'm missing a trick here.
FYI: I'm also now doubting my use of "mssql_pconnect()" - should I
being using "mssql_connect()" with "mssql_close()" instead?
