Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: replace ' with ''

    replace ' with ''


    I've got a mySQL database and a php file.
    The php file allows the user to add a comment and that comment is then added to the database.

    Now, everything is working - the comments and database, but when I type in a ' in the comment field, I get this error:

    You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version

    Is there a way I can replace the ' with '', because when I type in '' it works and only ' is added to the database.

    Can I do something like this before I add it to the database?
    Can someone please help me.
