Subject: [PHP-DB] MySQL and apostrophes, interesting problem. 42082
> I'm working with a simple form which submits field
> data to a MySQL database. This is for the purpose of
> generating a dynamic news page for my site.
> Interestingly enough I've found that any time I try to
> submit data that contains an apostrophe "'" it gives
> me an error and will not send the data (any of it) to
> the database.
> How can I change my database query, or escape out
> apostrophes? I'm looking for the easiest fix out
> there of course. Below is my current DB query. I
> realize I'm using apostrophes for my variables... is
> this acceptable syntax and/or is there a replacement?
> $query = "INSERT into $table values ('0', '$year',
> '$month', '$day', '$hour', '$minutes', '$seconds',
> '$article_name', '$content', '$admin_name')";
