Im having a problem with mysql 5. I find when i insert a post and i do a addslashes to the post that in the database the slashes that should normally appear dont exist..?

however as soon as i tried it on my other server which is running mysql 4 it works fine and theres the slashes.

i did a search on the forum to find nothing related i just wondered if anyone else has encountered this issue and if any resolve was found.
I have had a look through the mysql manual yet turned up nothing....

any advice would be appreciated.

The slashes are stripped automatically by PHP when you get the content out of the database (regardless of the state of magic_quotes_gpc). However if you look in side the mysql database using PHPMyAdmin or via the command line the slashes will still be there.
