I'm trying to turn MySQLi query errors to Exceptions, but couldn't - mysqli_sql_exception is thrown only if it failed to connect the DB.

I used mysqli_report(MYSQLI_REPORT_STRICT) and procedural MySQLi functions embedded to custom wrapper class.

Former code:

public function mysqlQuery($SQL) {

    $this->Result = mysqli_query($this->DBlink, $SQL);

    if($this->Result === false)
        throw new MySQLiQueryException($SQL, mysqli_error($this->DBlink), mysqli_errno($this->DBlink));

    return $this->Result;


Question: Is it normal no Warning, nor Exception are thrown when query fails so I have to check if mysqli_query() returned false?



Some time ago I managed to sort this matter out. As it was pointed out in the other answer,


is a correct way to tell mysqli to throw exceptions.

Just make sure you don't wrap every query in a try-catch. This is a very common misconception that as soon as you started using exceptions you should start throwing tries and catches left and right. Quite contrary, try-catch should be used warily. While 99% of your errors shouldn't be handled in place, but rather by a site-wide error handler.

According to another question here :

The INSERT command will return a boolean(true/false), So you must use select command to get the required result

Probably simplest and preferred solution is in Marco13's answer so don't get fooled by vote difference (this answer is few years older) or acceptance mark (it just means that this solution was appropriate for OP circumstances, not that it is best in general).

You can use ThreadFactory to set threads inside Executor to daemons. This will affect executor service in a way that it will also become daemon thread so it (and threads handled by it) will stop if there will be no other non-daemon thread. Here is simple example:

ExecutorService exec = Executors.newFixedThreadPool(4,
        new ThreadFactory() {
            public Thread newThread(Runnable r) {
                Thread t = Executors.defaultThreadFactory().newThread(r);
                return t;


But if you want to get executor which will let its task finish, and at the same time will automatically call its shutdown() method when application is complete, you may want to wrap your executor with Guava's MoreExecutors.getExitingExecutorService.

ExecutorService exec = MoreExecutors.getExitingExecutorService(
        (ThreadPoolExecutor) Executors.newFixedThreadPool(4), 
        100_000, TimeUnit.DAYS//period after which executor will be automatically closed
                             //I assume that 100_000 days is enough to simulate infinity
exec.execute(() -> {
    for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
        try {
        } catch (Exception e) {

yo need create the user "pma" in mysql or change this lines(user and password for mysql):

/* User for advanced features */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pma'; 
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';

Linux: /etc/phpmyadmin/

This is how your code should look (with added SQL Injection protection):

include "dbinfo.php"; //contains mysqli_connect information (the $mysqli variable)
$name = mysqli_real_escape_string($_GET['name']);
$text = mysqli_real_escape_string($_GET['text']);

$sqlqr = "INSERT INTO `ncool`.`coolbits_table` (`name`, `text`, `date`) VALUES ('" . $name . "', '" . $text . "', CURRENT_TIMESTAMP);";

mysqli_query($mysqli,$sqlqr); //function where the magic happens.

Take a look at what I've done. Firstly I've escaped the user input you're retrieving into the $name and $text variables (this is pretty much a must for security reasons) and as others have suggested you should preferably be using prepared statements.

The problem is that you weren't surrounding string values with single quotes ('), which is a requirement of the SQL syntax.

I hope this helps to answer your question.
