Hi experts,

I keep getting this error while trying to test a php form that insert data into (myisam) mysql database:
"Error entry: 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 '.29.230' at line 9"

This line refers to IP address.  I set the IP data-type to VARCHAR(15). So I am not really sure what's the problem?

Hi,
The IP is an auto insertion

In the form : <input type="hidden" name="IP" value="<?php echo $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] ?>" />

And $ip = stripslashes($ip);
