How to include a semicolon in an sql query?


Recommended Posts

I have this php script that generate an sql query. However, it needs a semicolon inside the sql statement and because of that, the sql query doesn't work.


The problem is that, the value bm_shopping_cart.php;bm_categories.php doesn't stored in the database that suppose to be inserted by that query. When I removed ;bm_categories.php the valuebm_shopping_cart.php is inserted on the database. So the problem resides on having the semicolon. I also tried using \ but the problem still there. I really need the semicolon included on the value. Any ideas?


VALUES ('Installed Modules', 'MODULE_BOXES_INSTALLED', 'bm_shopping_cart.php;bm_categories.php', 'This is automatically updated. No need to edit.', '6', '0', now())



It is included in this function.

function insert_configuration6_table($table_name9, $type) {
 global $wpdb;

 if (!empty ($wpdb->charset))
 $charset_collate = "DEFAULT CHARACTER SET {$wpdb->charset}";
 if (!empty ($wpdb->collate))
 $charset_collate .= " COLLATE {$wpdb->collate}";

$sql = "INSERT INTO {$table_name9} (configuration_title, configuration_key, configuration_value, configuration_description, configuration_group_id, sort_order, date_added) VALUES ('Installed Modules', 'MODULE_BOXES_INSTALLED', 'bm_shopping_cart.php;bm_categories.php', 'This is automatically updated. No need to edit.', '6', '0', now()),('Installed Template Block Groups', 'TEMPLATE_BLOCK_GROUPS', 'boxes', 'This is automatically updated. No need to edit.', '6', '0', now());";

 require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php');


I have searched a lot for this however, I can't find a solution that work.


How can I make an sql query that includes a semicolon in the values?
