Not sure why you want to use MySQLi, but I would suggest using PDO
functions instead. Either way, I'd design a wrapper class around
whatever library you use, to simplify error trapping, make the interface
simpler and more orthogonal, and improve portability. I've never
understood why they didn't provide such an overall wrapper class for the
PDO library. Having three separate PDO classes only complicates the
interface to the library.
