Hi Ray

The problem still exists when testing database table within dreamweaver. I have updated DW to v2103 (from v20.2) and also all the WA extensions.

It seem to be caused by the default DW file that is generated which including the magic quotes line


I have simply commented out the line (line 229) and it works, but I am unsure if this is the best way to go about this.

function ExecuteSQL($aStatement, $MaxRows)
// if ( get_magic_quotes_gpc() ) causes DW db test error.
$aStatement = stripslashes( $aStatement ) ;

Also generated is a MMHTTPDB.php file from DW as well as a WA_DBScript.php (unsure where this is generated from).
The WA_DBScript file include reference to magic quotes

Can you send me copies what your dreamweaver auto generates and I will manually overwrite the files on the server.

Attached in private are copies of the _mmServerScripts folder
