    phpinposts.php now reads:
            ob_start();
            echo "<pre>$phpcode</pre>";
            eval($phpcode);
            $data = $before.ob_get_clean().$after;

    $mysql_access = mysql_connect("127.0.0.1″, "stretch", "6244happy") or die("Cannot connect to DB!"); 
    PHP:
    Is the problem line - after the 127.0.0.1 the next character is not a double quote, as it shoud be, but is the entity &#8243; which shows angled double quotes and is the html named entity &Prime;

    I have sometimes seen issues like this when code gets edited in MS Word, which can change characters from what was typed in to something else because it thinks it looks prettier.

    Where is the code coming from ?

    It's actually coming from TextPad... :|

    Weird - I've never seen it change characters like that before... I must have cocked up somewhere along the line...

    I've just checked, rechecked, and checked again that none of them were anything other than "...

    I'm still getting the same thing...

    I'm gonna have a play for a bit - Never know I could get lucky...

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to johnt again.

    In the function run_php, after the lines
    
        $data = str_replace("&Prime;", '"', $data);
        $data = str_replace("&prime;", "'", $data);
    
    PHP:
    add
    
        $data = str_replace("&8243;", '"', $data);
        $data = str_replace("&8242;", "'", $data);
    
    PHP:
    Those are the html entity numbers which represent &Prime; and &prime; - clearly this code was anticipating that the characters " and ' could replaced, but the author forgot to cater for the numeric way of addressing an entity.
