Um, toweter.. LAST_INSERT_ID() is a MySQL function, not a PHP function, so it has to be part of the query. PHP will just throw a "undefined function" error.

Anyway, atroz, I'm guessing that the problem here is that, to quote the docs, "The last ID that was generated is maintained in the server on a per-connection basis." I'm guessing that between the time you create the record and when you try to UPDATE it, you've since created a new connection (e.g. you're running a different script or a different instance of the script).

You could just use MAX(id) instead, I suppose.
