In PHP, you can escape single quotes ('), double quotes ("), and backslashes () by using a backslash () before the character.


Here are some examples:

  1. Escape single quotes within single quotes: $str = 'This is an example of escaping a single quote: ''; echo $str; Output: This is an example of escaping a single quote: '
  2. Escape double quotes within double quotes: $str = "This is an example of escaping a double quote: ""; echo $str; Output: This is an example of escaping a double quote: "
  3. Escape backslashes: $str = "This is an example of escaping a backslash: \"; echo $str; Output: This is an example of escaping a backslash:


By using the backslash () before the character, PHP treats it as a literal character instead of special characters.
