I didn't have that much patience. ;-)

I wonder why you're trying to count the rows in the database in order
to set up a simple auto-increment?

If for some reason your table can't include an AUTO INCREMENT field,
perhaps you could just "SELECT id FROM table ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 1"
to get the highest id number, and then add one to it.
