I'm just getting started here and I'm working with PHP & MySQL for Dummies. The book says to write a simple file called "test.php" with the following entries in it: <html> <head> <title>PHP Test</title> </head> <body> <p>This is an HTML line <p> <?php echo "This is a PHP line"; phpinfo(); ?> </body></html> When I run http://localhost/test.php, this is the error I got: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in C:\apachefriends\xampp\htdocs\test.php on line 9. Can someone tell me what's wrong and what I need to do to get things squared away? Thank you... Respectfully, Clinton E.

You're going to have to do some more careful data scrubbing on the incoming data. E.G. one of the strings says "it's used in the retail, banking, and insurance industries, among" ... And it's breaking the containing ' - insert into foo (bar) values ('this isn't going to work.'); might I suggest starting with addslashes() Cheers, - Martin Norland, Sys Admin / Database / Web Developer, International Outreach x3257 The opinion(s) contained within this email do not necessarily represent those of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. -----Original Message----- From: Yui Hiroaki [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Monday, September 19, 2005 1:26 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [PHP-DB] insert error for mysql. . hi!
