After years I'm back on Emacs. At the moment I'm writing a PHP/Mysql
project and wonder how I can get some indentation on the SQL statements
within PHP code.

When I write function calls like


I can indent pressing <Tab> key. But when I do same for SQL just nothing

$query = "SELECT foo
FROM bar
WHERE foobar"

I have to manually indent...

any hints?

There's no easy solution, unfortunately. I think the only thing you can do is et up MMM or MuMaMo so those regions are sql-mode instead of php-mode, and use sql-indent.el.

I've never had the patience to get either of those working, so I just align it by hand in the source, or edit the query in a *SQL* buffer, then dump it into the source in a here document.
