Delete many rows from a table using id in Mysql

The best way is to use IN statement :

DELETE from tablename WHERE id IN (1,2,3,…,254);

You can also use BETWEEN if you have consecutive IDs :

DELETE from tablename WHERE id BETWEEN 1 AND 254;

You can of course limit for some IDs using other WHERE clause :

DELETE from tablename WHERE id BETWEEN 1 AND 254 AND id<>10;
