yes, indeed, I use different users. The user php uses has limited rights 
(select only). Do you have an example on how to set the "search_path" in 
php? Or is this done within postgresql?

That way I wouldn't have to add the schema name before the function name 
and just use the normal SQL statements.

Thank you very much for that hint and any further information on how to 
set the search_path.
