Hi,

 

Please forgive me if I missed something (I have been searching for a definitive answer for this for 2 days).

 

Is there any way to disable autocommit in libpq? (PG 7.4.1)

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Just call BEGIN to start a transaction, and COMMIT to commit it. Other
than that, no.

And very on topic, you need to upgrade ASAP to the latest 7.4.x.

Thanks for the reply. Your advice to upgrade sounds urgent. Are there critical reasons I need to go to 7.4.16?

Thanks

Read the release notes between 7.4.1 and 7.4.16 and judge for yourself:
