bug in ->insert_id() using PostgreSQL - El Forum - 08-22-2008

Logic to figure out version number in ->insert_id() under Postgres has a bug in it.

Currently, it tries to glean the version using this:

$v = $this->_version();
$v = $v['server'];

Where ->_version() only returns the SQL string:

"SELECT version() AS ver"

Even if it were to return the actual product of this SQL query using ->version() instead, the next line wouldn't work because this is what it would return:

"PostgreSQL 8.2.4 on i686-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by GCC gcc (GCC) 4.1.1 (Gentoo 4.1.1-r3)"


Here's a diff of my fix to /system/data/base/drivers/postgre/postgre_driver.php:

<         return "SELECT version() AS ver";
>         // Parse version number out of result    
>         return "SELECT trim(substring(version(), 'PostgreSQL (([0-9]{1,}\.)*)' )) as ver";
<         $v = $this->_version();
<         $v = $v['server'];
>         $v = $this->version();
