How to control documents in a BD that can be edited by multiple users?

Last Modified: 2015-03-25

We have documents in a cloud software that can be edited by multiple users at the same time (invoices, quotes, etc...). We need to find a solution for this, since these documents can be inconsistent.

For now we considered Mutex, but we don't know if there are any other possibilities for doing this (Merging algorithms or anything else). Everything is being saved in a mysql database.
