PHP How to set $variable = "$_GET['name']"

PHP How to set variable = "_GET[‘name’]";

The goal is to update a variable into having the same information as what is used in the query string.

when I try to run my code I get this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘’ (T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE), expecting ‘-’ or identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or number (T_NUM_STRING)

So little information…

Please post the problematic script and don’t forget to enclose inside </> or starting and finishing with ```

Better yet, tell us what the REAL problem is that you are trying to solve by doing this.

Does $variable = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] do what you want?


You don’t need the double quotes around $_GET['name']; it should just be $variable = $_GET['name'];.

All get parameters are strings by default, no need to wrap them in another string.
