I have 2 tables:
I am coding with PHP(CodeIgniter). So I am trying to insert data into review_tb with the review the user had submitted and if that is a success, i will award the user with some points.
Well this look like a very simple process. We will first insert the review into the review_tb with the username and use PHP to check if there is any problem with the query executed and if it's a success, we will proceed with updating the points in the user_tb.
Yea, but here comes the problem. What if inserting into review_tb is a success but the second query, inserting into the user_tb is NOT a success, can we kind of "undo" the review_tb query or "revert" the change that we did to review_tb.
It's kind of like "all or nothing".
The purpose of this is to sync all data across the database, where in real life, we will be managing a database of more tables, and inserting more data into each table which depends on each other.
Please give some enlightenment on how we can do this in PHP or CodeIgniter or just MySql query.
