Does sometime fputs() or fwrite() encode html special characters?
I am outputting a string that consists of html content to a html file, but in the html file the html special characters are encoded (for example " in \" ). I've even used htmlspecialcharacters_decode before using the write functions. The wierd part is that on my computer the characters are not encoded, while uploaded on some server are encoded. How can I deal with this problem?
You are probably suffering from Magic Quotes
Check you phpinfo();
To clear Magic Quotes look into the discussion at php.net: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.stripslashes.php
Example (c) jeremysawesome:
array_walk_recursive($_POST, create_function('&$val', '$val = stripslashes($val);'));
