How do I get the last mysql query that was executed

In brief, I want to find out the last SQL statement that was executed (when there's an error) and log it.

I get the last error in with with mysql_error, is there a similar command for the last query?

Are you talking about PHP? There is no function that returns the last query, but what you can do is store the query in a variable, and conditionally test to see if the query went through successfully. If it did not, then produce an error and log it.

$query = "INSERT INTO tablename (col1, col2) VALUES ('moo','fish')";
$result = mysql_query($query);
if(!$result) {
echo 'An error has occured!";
//log error with $query

I hope this helps! :)
