Creating a reusable Php Database Class

Hi folks I need a class to manage my database connections, and since I tried very hard to interact with any of the ones I found and couldn't make head over tails, a class indication with some explanation would be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the MySQLi class.  Or the PDO class.  Or you can extend these with your own classes.  Both of these are documented in this article that shows the mapping from the familiar MySQL extension to the newer extensions.

After you read it over, if you still have questions, please post back.
