I have a MySql table with an auto-increment id field, and in the table I have 4 records that do not change and have ids 1 to 10. The table also contain another 20+ records with id's eg 11-31. The last 20 records will be regularly deleted and re-iniserted with slightly different data, is there anyway of resetting the autoincrement back to the last record id+1, using Php without creating a new table?
