How do I escape single quote for example.
User enters in the name field: El’art Devoun
$myvar = $data['name']; //name is El'art Devoun // some code to remove the single quote
Then save it to database with data not escaped?
Use PDO and parameterized queries for you database insert. This will automatically prevent sql injection etc from the quote (and other non-safe entities):
<?php $dbh = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=test', $user, $pass); $stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO yourTable (name) VALUES (:name)"); $stmt->bindParam(':name', $name); // insert row $name = $data['name']; $stmt->execute(); ?>
more can be found in the php docs
