    Hi Guys,
    SEMrush
    This is what I need to accomplish...

    UPDATE links SET out=out+1 WHERE id = (SELECT id FROM links WHERE url = '$url')
    PHP:
    But mysql gives...

    What is the best alternate way to achieve this?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Hi Fahd,

    I might be missing something but wouldn't:

    UPDATE links SET out=out+1 WHERE url = '$url'

    work for you?

    Hi Fahd,

    Glad I could help. You're not stupid - a stupid person wouldn't ask for help.
