SQL: multiple WHERE statements

Is something like this possible in a "clean" way?

SELECT * FROM table WHERE id = '1' OR id = '11' OR id = '9' OR id = '4' OR id = '6'
and so on...

For example I want to select information only about particular records (using PHP). I have an array with the records' ids (the size of array is unknown). Can I do something like this or is it impossible?

SELECT * FROM table WHERE id = '$array';

Try this:
PHP Code:
$ids join(",",$array);
$sql "SELECT * FROM table WHERE id IN ($ids)"
