Joomla 3 Magic Quotes Off Issue

Joomla Michigan was created using Joomla 3.03. While trying to migrate off of my development environment to production, I encountered something I'd not forseen happening.

Apparently, Joomla 3+ requires Magic Quotes (it's a server setting) to be turned off before installing. If they're on, you have to turn them off to get to the next install step.

Here's how to turn Magic Quotes Off for Joomla 3 and later

First, open up notepad or similar editor (I was using Sublime 2). create a document with the two lines below and save as php.ini.

magic_quotes_gpc = Off
session.save_path = "/tmp"

 Now you will want to FTP it to your webserver in the public_html/installation folder, or whereever your installation folder resides.

Retry your installation and you'll be able to fully install that awesome Joomla 3+

    Hi
    Unfortunately that does not solve the problem always, like yahoo web services does not override the Magic Quotes. I tried php.ini in installation folder, under root, both php.htaccess under root directory, nothing helped to override this setting, its kind of crazy o bother yourself with such a small thing, i think both Joomla/ Yahopo are annoyying after all...
