Re: MySQL is auto escaping all commands

It's not MySQL. It's a PHP setting controlled by your web host, very likely magic_quotes_gpc, see

It was deprecated in PHP 5,3, removed in PHP 5.4. I would not use a web host that sets it.

For several reasons database data does need to be escaped. As that PHP doc page explains, though, the one-size-fits-all approach of magic_quotes_gpc() does not fit all. Until you can move to host, you'll have to write code to compensate for their setting.
