In a MySQL query, how do I write an IF ELSE statement?

Something like below:

mysql_query("...(irrelevant code).. IF(action==2&&state==0){state=1}");

Then down in my array, I can do this:

//this should equal 1, the query should not change anything in the database, 
//just the variable for returning the information

You may need to use a CASE expression.

It can be like this:

SELECT col1, col2, (case when (action = 2 and state = 0) 
 as state from tbl1;

Do refer to the SQL tutorial that will help you out in a better way.
