    How to deal with Special Chars like apostrophe?

    When I check the values on the table I see the special char (in that case the apostrophe)

    Does that help?

    Code (Text):
    $value = "bob's apples";
    $value_to_database =  html_entity_decode(htmlentities($value, ENT_QUOTES), ENT_QUOTES);
