in thread DBI search for forward slash

Yes, phpMyAdmin returns proper line with this request. I'm using MySql with MyISAM storage.

I can find in this table any string with one slash at the begining, but not in the middle of the string.

    But = only compares for identity. You want LIKE, and you want the % placeholder:

    SELECT * FROM `texts` WHERE `string` LIKE '%/a/b/c%'

    ... or, with placeholders:

    SELECT * FROM `texts` WHERE `string` LIKE ?

    (and then in the ->execute() call, add the placeholders to your search string)

      LIKE is fail as well
