Hi List

I am trying to make a Database Abstraction Layer so I can which the DB
of my application between MySQL and Postgresql. I have been looking at
the way phpBB does it, and it seems that it is only then php-functions
which are different. The SQL seems to be the same.

Is it save to assume that I can use the same SQL, or should i make some

Simple SQL is almost identical. But there are many of the more advanced functions that have major differences. Check out ADOdb for an existing abstraction layer that handles a lot of them.
