The client must issue a command to commit or rollback the transaction.In your example, are you sending all of the SQL lines (including the COMMIT) as a single execution? It sounds like the interface stops executing as soon as an error is reached. So perhaps change your code to execute the COMMIT separately after all the other commands have executed.

Yes, that is nice way to work with databases, but I am on PHP4 and I am not using the PDO. But getting back to my problem - perhaps there is something I misunderstood: is it the client application responsibility to check if the transaction failed or succeeded and issue COMMIT or ROLLBACK accordingly (how do I close the transaction block in that case)? Or is it the database server that is suppose to check if transaction succeded and perform the query, or ROLLBACK if anything went wrong?
