I agree with most contributors in that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

I have spent over 10 years writing PHP and MySQL code and I don't have the time or patience to create a wrapper to replace the present mysql implementation in PHP.

If the worst happens, it will mean a massive effort to rewrite stuff with all the attendant issues in redevelopment and assoicated testing. Who is going to pay for re-development on this scale . . . ?

I guess I need to write new code using PDO, but my existing customers will be screaming at me

A: Customer

A: So left them with current php version installed and do further development in this environment

A: Who cares about your patience? You should think about it 10yo and start with writing OO wrapper.
