I use a httprequest to send data from an update form to my
php script to update mysql. But when there is a ' character in the
description field. The update fails. What could be the cause?
Before I insert it into database I use addslashes....
This sounds like a PHP issue. You may have magic_quotes
turned on (deprecated in 5.3.0; is on by default). If it is, and
you are using addslashes(), you are actually doing double escaping
