Mysql is corrupting stringified JSON object

Last Modified: 2016-05-22
I'm sending a stringified JSON object into a mysql database via AJAX for later retrieval. When the value is recalled from the database and I attempt to parse it into an object with JSON.parse() I get an 'Uncaught Syntax error Uncaught Value \'.

I can stringify and parse the object just fine before it hits the mysql table.

I've tried many combinations of mysql_real_escape_string() and stripslashes() in php before and after the string hits the database, and I just tried it with magic_quotes_gpc on. The data is POSTed to the server in AJAX with a FormData object.

Can't seem to get this one right. Any hints?
