Here is my problem: i have to exectute multiple SELECT queries to the database, ad my question is how it would be how it would be faster: 1) either calling a stored procedure with mysqli_multi_query. That stored procedure wold contain all of the SELECT queries. 2) using mysqli_multi_query to query all of the SELECTs directly I don't know exactly how mysqli_multi_query works, i mena does it send all of the queryes in one message to the mysql server, or one by one (like a regulat mysql(i)_query)? Because if you call a stored procedure it sends just ONE query (the CALL of the procedure). I hope you understood what i ment ... Thanks in advance!
