Fulltext search of mySql database using PDO - apostrophe in string
Posted by: Stoycho Trenchev

Can you please help me on this?: I have a method of a class that uses PDO to search mysql database and it works but the problem is with apostrophe in a search string - it shows “Syntax error or access violation: 1064”. When single or double quotes in the string the script works fine – no slashes and no errors. This is the case when the site is on local WAMPSERVER 2.1.

When I put the same site on a live server the characters (apostrophe, quotes) are escaped with slashes? Even if I use PDO?

Any ideas why?

public static function searchstring($per_page=0, $pg_offset=0, $search=0){
global $database;
$sql = "SELECT * FROM tablename WHERE MATCH (fieldname) AGAINST (:searchstr IN BOOLEAN MODE) LIMIT {$per_page} OFFSET {$pg_offset}";
try
{
$database->prepare($sql);
$database->bindParam(':searchstr', $search);
$database->execute();
$result_array = $database->fetch_array($sql);
return $result_array;
}
catch (Exception $e)
{
echo $e->getMessage();
}
}
