I see \'s in SQL and HTMP output from PHP and it causes the SQL to error and the HTML to display incorrectly.


Your host has turned on "magic quotes". This is a feature of little value and only causes confusion. Consequently most hosting companies do not switch this feature on.


There are three solutions:

1. Turn it off by adding the following to your .htaccess file:

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off

2. Ask your host to switch it off in the PHP.ini file.

3. If your host blocks the use of .htaccess files (very few do) and will not change the PHP.ini so that magic quotes are NOT used then the only option is to switch hosting companies.

I am having the\\\\ issue in my emails.

Should magic quotes be on or off in the BCP?
