Hi , what is wrong with this syntax:

  SELECT a.*,  b.* FROM   'pages`  a 
 left join  'pages'  b  on (b.parent_id = a.id)  

WHERE a.parent_id = 1

Open in new window

Use backticks consistently to quote table names or leave them out altogether.
 SELECT a.*,  b.* FROM   `pages`  a 
 left join  `pages`  b  on (b.parent_id = a.id)  
 WHERE a.parent_id = 1

You have 'pages` a with a leading quote and an ending back quote and 'pages' b with both a leading and ending quote.
