php 5 and mysql failure

P: n/a
I'm using a php script which performs three xml queries to other three
servers to retrieve a set of ids and after I do a query to mysql of
the kind
SELECT * FROM table WHERE id IN ('set of ids');
Although I'm sure the connection to the database is ok, I sometimes
get an error of this kind:
*Warning*: mysql_fetch_object(): supplied argument is not a valid
MySQL result resource in ...
This does not happen every time i run the script, only sometimes.
If I echo the query, copy and paste in phpmyadmin, or if I perform the
same query in a script that does only the query without the rest it
works!
After troubleshooting this issue I noticed that it usually failed when
I had a big set of ids (positive response from more than one server).
This means that the script used a bigger amount of memory and probably
more resources, but I did not get an "out of memory error", I got the
one described before.
My question is, is there any kind of limit somewhere in php5 or in
mysql (version 5)?
Thanks for help,

yes, there is..
http://tinyurl.com/3jgwjn

but, how many (or how much?) id's do get returned at max?
maybe you have to rewrite your solution to get a working one..

It's possible you're running into a limit, but it's quite large.

The "supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource" indicates
your mysql_query() returned false, probably. You should ALWAYS check
the result of mysql_query(), and if it fails, log the error (you really
don't want to display those errors to your users, do you?). Or, on a
development system, display the error.

thanks. the query is correct because only sometimes I got this
error...but the way on which I got this error seems to be completely
random...the number of ids I returned is quite variable but it's
around some (one-two-three) hundreds

Probably it's a problem related to php and mysql. if I copy and paste
the query in phpmyadmin it always works, so I wouldn't say it's a
mysql limit problem.

thanks. the query is correct because only sometimes I got this

I'd say: the (building of the) query is incorrect because sometimes you
get an error. How are you building it?
but the way on which I got this error seems to be completely
random...the number of ids I returned is quite variable but it's
around some (one-two-three) hundreds
In the small hundreds should be a piece of cake for any database, so
that's probably not an issue. (Well, at least not on the MySQL side of
things).

And last but not least: when echoing out a query to check it's results
another way (phpMyAdmin, command line) always copy the _source_, and never
just what's in a browser window.

If the query were correct, you would not be getting the error you are
getting.

Your error indicates mysql_query() returned false. It did not return
zero entries; that is still a result resource (albeit an empty one).

ALWAYS check the result of mysql_query(). And when it returns false,
try logging the error returned by mysql_error(). It also may help to
log the SELECT statement itself.

OK, now we're making some progress. This is a MySQL failure, not one in
PHP (although your query may still have problems).

You need to follow this up on comp.databases.mysql (where I see you also
started a thread).
