Every pro has this feature (magic_quotes_gpc) turned off. If you
understand SQL Injection vulnerabilities, and properly bind things into

ok - new to using pdo functions, but I thought I had a handle on it.

I'm writing out to my page an input tag with the following value in it:


I can confirm it by using my browser's "view source" to see that is
exactly how it exists in the page.

When I hit a submit button and my script retrieves the 'post' vars my
debugging steps are showing that the var $_POST['team'] contains the
above value with a backslash (\) already inserted. This is causing me
a problem when I then try to use pdo->quote to safely encode it for
updating my sql database.

My question is - why does the POST var show the \ char before I
execute the 'quote' function?

You're right!  But I must not understand something.

My root folder has a php.ini file with the magic quotes set off. Doesn't that carry on down to folders beneath it?

I would check phpinfo() to see if it is being overridden.
