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.

    Thank you, the mysql_real_escape_string works perfect.
