<?php
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
$sql = file_get_contents("C:/Users/Acer/Documents/dumps/storage-creates.sql");

// ISOLATE THE CREATE TABLE STATEMENTS
preg_match_all("/CREATE TABLE [^;]+;/", $sql, $mat);
$new = $mat[0];
// $new = implode(PHP_EOL, $mat[0]);

// REMOVE THE AUTO_INCREMENT
foreach($new as $idx => $sql)
{
  $new[$idx] = preg_replace('/AUTO_INCREMENT.*?\s/i', NULL, $sql);
}

foreach($new as $query)
{
  echo $query . "<br><br>";
}
echo '<pre>';
echo '<br>sql<br>-------------------<br><br>';
var_dump($sql);
echo '<br>mat<br>-------------------<br><br>';
var_dump($mat);
echo '<br>new<br>-------------------<br><br>';
var_dump($new);
echo '</pre>';

Please help me remove only the auto increment at the bottom of the query.  I still need query to be auto increment, but I do not want column to start at a high number because new table is empty.


output
CREATE TABLE `a_images` ( `a_images_id` int(11) NOT NULL `profile_id` varchar(20) default NULL, `image_name` varchar(100) default NULL, `image_url` varchar(200) default NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`a_images_id`) ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

Please see if this helps (an adjustment to the regular expression):

Deconstructing the regular expression... By omitting the "i" modifier at the end, this will only match the upper case string literal.

/                 REGEX Delimiter
AUTO_INCREMENT=   String Literal
\d+?              Numeric digits, 1 or more, ungreedy
\s                Whitespace
/                 REGEX delimiter

foreach($new as $query)

Thank you.

echo $new produced output with no linebreaks

 Could you please teach me linebreaks
