I'm not experienced enough in PHP to be a mentor 
in it but from one beginner to another maybe this 
will be useful.

Here is a link to a resource I used to get myself 
up-and-running with PHP. 

I wrote the attached code when I playing around 
with the example from the MySQL manual.  It's just 
play code bu maybe it can point you to the name of 
functions (methods) to investigate.

   Starting PHP script
   '; ?> host_info); echo '
   '; printf("Server info: %s\n", $mysqli->server_info); echo '
   '; $query = "SELECT CURRENT_USER();"; $query .= "SELECT name FROM
   pet"; /* execute multi query */ if ($mysqli->multi_query($query)) { do
   { /* store first result set */ if ($result = $mysqli->store_result())
   { while ($row = $result->fetch_row()) { printf("%s
   ", $row[0]); } $result->close(); } /* print divider */ if
   ($mysqli->more_results()) { printf("-----------------
   "); } } while ($mysqli->next_result()); } /* close connection */
   $mysqli->close(); ?>
