How to send a SQL query to database in PHP without waiting for result
Working with DB2 and PHP, my ADDs and DROPs take a long time to finish (30 seconds per ADD and DROP). I am curious if there is a way to send my ADDs and DROPs to the database without having PHP wait for a response?
I'm fairly certain that most php db controls don't have async methods (too bad). Presuming that you just need to do DB statements that don't interact with the end user you could use pcntl_fork. If you need something else, a solution like this may be more useful.
