Limit the number of rows returned

MySQL supports the LIMIT keyword, which allows you to control how many rows are returned; ideal when displaying data over many pages. You can use LIMIT in your sql query like this:

SELECT name FROM table LIMIT 10

if you want to get the rows between 10 and 20 do the following:

SELECT name FROM table LIMIT 9, 10
