To retrieve the resultset from the first query you can use mysqli_use_result() or mysqli_store_result(). All subsequent query results can be processed using mysqli_more_results() and mysqli_next_result().

Parameters

Return Values

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

$query  "SELECT CURRENT_USER();";
$query .= "SELECT Name FROM City ORDER BY ID LIMIT 20, 5";

/* execute multi query */
if ($mysqli->multi_query($query)) {
    do {
        
/* store first result set */
        
if ($result $mysqli->store_result()) {
            while (
$row $result->fetch_row()) {
                
printf("%s\n"$row[0]);
            }
            
$result->free();
        }
        
/* print divider */
        
if ($mysqli->more_results()) {
            
printf("-----------------\n");
        }
    } while (
$mysqli->next_result());
}

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>

Procedural style

<?php
$link 
mysqli_connect("localhost""my_user""my_password""world");

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

$query  "SELECT CURRENT_USER();";
$query .= "SELECT Name FROM City ORDER BY ID LIMIT 20, 5";

/* execute multi query */
if (mysqli_multi_query($link$query)) {
    do {
        
/* store first result set */
        
if ($result mysqli_store_result($link)) {
            while (
$row mysqli_fetch_row($result)) {
                
printf("%s\n"$row[0]);
            }
            
mysqli_free_result($result);
        }
        
/* print divider */
        
if (mysqli_more_results($link)) {
            
printf("-----------------\n");
        }
    } while (
mysqli_next_result($link));
}

/* close connection */
mysqli_close($link);
?>

The above examples will output something similar to:
