Hi

I have a database that needs to be displayed based on their  id, in phpmyadmin it works correctly

1
23
156
276
1245

but in php it sorts like

1
1245
156
23
276


I have tried to search for this here but did not solve it, hope anyone can help me, the id's are all digits

could or should I just insert digits into the numbers that are:
1
23
156

like they will become

0001
0023
0156

if so, how should i do that?

I prefer filling up the id's with more digits, the numbers will never become greater than 5 digits but if for display php can do this so i do not have to alter the database that is even safer i think
