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...

  • A chilly Joomla! Day in Arusha.

     Welcome to Arusha, the town so calm, so beautiful, so welcoming. You should come here if you can afford it. Endless queues of tourist are arriving here in their numbers....You wonder why, but when you are here, everything makes sense, makes peace. Driving in Arusha I can see how a large, sprawling city with all of the contradictions that brings, it is, the best place to be. The traffic police standing on the street in their white uniform, very white my friend asked how they wash it, they keep it white, just like new.
