mysql query with single quotes in a variable

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

$sitedetails = "INSERT INTO vars (address, sitename, description, ownername, theme) VALUES ('$url', '$sitename', '$description', '$ownername', '$theme') ";
mysql_query($sitedetails) or die(mysql_error()); // site details in mysql

If say $sitename = "scott nicol's blog"; - this will give me:
Code: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 's blog test', 'scott nicol', 'scott nicol', 'default')' at line 1
I know it's due to the single quite in 'nicol's', how do I keep the quote, but stop this error?
