stored procedures and mysql_insert_id issue


My problem is this: I Created a store procedure from php to mysql. Now before someone says something about that practice, The procedure works fine. The problem is this, when I call the procedure from php and I KNOW that a record has been entered, mysql_insert_id(), returns 0... Any ideas why?

Oh, and yes, my id field is AUTO_INCREMENT and PRIMARY KEY

p.s If there's an easy way to format my code in here, pls tell me. I put pre in html, but it doesn't seem to work very well.

Ty in advance.

$PROCEDURE_INSERT_UPDATE_BOARD = " CREATE PROCEDURE InsertUpdateBoard(IN `pNewBoardUUID` CHAR(36), IN `pOldBoardUUID` CHAR(36), IN `pSimName` VARCHAR(40), IN `pOwnerName` VARCHAR(64), IN `pOwnerUUID` CHAR(36), IN `pLandmark` VARCHAR(80), IN `pVersion` VARCHAR(10), IN `pManagerUUID` CHAR(36), IN `pBoardURL` CHAR(80), IN `pPassword` CHAR(8)) BEGIN CALL InsertUpdateSims(`pSimName`); CALL InsertUpdateAvatars(`pOwnerName`, `pOwnerUUID`); INSERT INTO boards(`boardUUID`, `simId`, `ownerId`, `landmark`, `version`, `managerId`, `boardURL`, `password`) VALUES(`pOldBoardUUID`, (SELECT rS.id FROM 2starsglobal.sims AS rS WHERE rS.name=`pSimName`), (SELECT rA.id FROM 2starsglobal.avatars AS rA WHERE rA.UUID = `pOwnerUUID`), `pLandmark`, `pVersion`, (SELECT rA2.id FROM 2starsglobal.avatars AS rA2 WHERE rA2.UUID = `pManagerUUID`), `pBoardURL`, `pPassword`) ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE `boardUUID`=`pNewBoardUUID`, `landmark`=`pLandmark`, `version`=`pVersion`, `boardURL`=`pBoardURL`; END ";

And the Php code

function InsertUpdateBoard($boardNewUUID, $boardOldUUID, $simName, $ownerName, $ownerUUID, $boardLandmark, $versionNumber, $managerUUID, $boardURL) { $password = generatePassword(8); $query = "CALL InsertUpdateBoard('$boardNewUUID', '$boardOldUUID', '$simName', '$ownerName', '$ownerUUID', '$boardLandmark', '$versionNumber', '$managerUUID', '$boardURL', '$password')"; mysql_query($query) or die("ERROR:QUERY_FAILED " . mysql_error()); if(mysql_affected_rows() > 0) { if(mysql_insert_id() > 0) { echo "SUCCESS,$password"; } else { echo "SUCCESS"; } } else { echo 'FAILED:BOARD_REGISTRATION_UPDATE'; } }

Note that if you Call a MySQL stored procedure to insert a new record and then reference $db->insert_id; you will get 0 back, not the last inserted ID.

It is therefore necessary to add a line to your MySQL Stored Procedure such as

select last_insert_id() as intRecordKey;

after the insert so that the query will return the new key value.
