I just wanted to know if it is necessary to close the database connection after using a prepared statement?

Something like:

$stmt->execute();
$stmt->close();
$link->close();

Open in new window

No.  It's never necessary.  The script termination / garbage collection process will close the connection for you.  Examples here:

There are times when I have encountered the need to decompress a response from a PHP request. This is how it's done, but you must have control of the request and you can set the Accept-Encoding header.
