Primary Key Name
I have a question about how to name the primary row id key in my MySQL tables. Is it good practice to use the same naming convention for the primary row id field in every table e.g. "row_id", or should i name them all uniquely e.g. in the users table call it "users_row_id" and in the products table call it "products_row_id"?
I would assume that using the same name in each table is the best way to go but i'm just worried that when i do a join query that it will be a bit more awkward to distinguish between each tables row_id field.
