What is the correct way to format and str_replace to change a backslash to a forward slash? I've tried:

str_replace( '\', '/', $string );

But that produces an error.

Remember the backslash is the escape character so you have to escape the backslash with another backslash effectively, for example:

$string = "hello \ there";
$string = str_replace( '\\', '/', $string );
echo $string;
