This task should be trivial...but when I insert/update a record in my MySQL database with a value containing special characters, the special characters are not saved. No special message. Why?
#getting pars with CGI
my $q = CGI->new();
my $LicenseKey = $q->param('key');
my $UserName = $q->param('user');
my $UserPW = $q->param('pw');
my $dbhServer = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$db:$host", $user, $pass);
my $sth = $dbhServer->prepare("INSERT INTO Accounts VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?
$sth->execute(undef, $LicenseKey, $UserName, $UserPW, $date) || print
+("ERROR EXECUTION: " . $dbhServer->errstr);
#same with updating
my $sth = $dbhServer->prepare('update Accounts set UserName=?, Passwor
+d=? WHERE LicenseKey=?');
$sth->execute($UserName, $UserPW, $LicenseKey)|| print ("ERROR EXECUTI
+ON: " . $dbhServer->errstr);
