What is PDO? 

  • The PHP Data Objects (PDO) extension defines a lightweight, consistent interface for accessing databases in PHP.
  • PDO is a PHP extension to formalise PHP’s database connections by creating a uniform interface. This allows developers to create code which is portable across many databases and platforms. 
  • PDO is not just another abstraction layer like PEAR DB or ADOdb.
