Jibaba: Use mysql_real_escape_string() instead of mysql_real_string()


The function needs two parameters: One is your database connection. The other is the string you want to clean.



$wash-me = "I might have dangerous data inside me!";

$clean = mysql_real_escape_string($wash-me, $database-connection);



Now you can use $clean to put data safe into a database. :)
