mysql_autocommit - Man Page

Name

mysql_autocommit - Toggles autocommit mode

Synopsis

#include <mysql.h>

my_bool mysql_autocommit(MYSQL * mysql, my_bool auto_mode);

Description

Toggles autocommit mode on or off for the current database connection. Autocommit mode will be set if mode=1 or unset if mode=0.

Parameters:

  • mysql is a connection identifier, which was previously allocated by mysql_init(3) and connected by mysql_real_connect(3).
  • auto_mode - whether to turn autocommit on or not.

Notes

  • Autocommit mode only affects operations on transactional table types. To determine the current state of autocommit mode use the SQL command SELECT @@autocommit or check the server status (see example below).
  • Be aware: the [mysql_rollback()}(mysql_rollback() function will not work if autocommit mode is switched on.

Examples

SQL

# Turn of autocmmit
SET AUTOCOMMIT=0;

# Retrieve autocommit
SELECT @@autocommit;
+--------------+
| @@autocommit |
+--------------+
|            0 |
