An Extended Ascii code understands the following as types of quote...


mySQL uses this, and thus these need escaping by addslashes (or magic slashes). POST/GET strings involving these will not be escaped properly and thus queries involving those strings will fail.

See around line 2485 of ext/standard/string.c

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

You should be using mysql_escape_string() and not addslashes().
