Hey guys,

I think web hosting tech support is not being helpful at all, so maybe someone here can help me.

Here’s my problem: I just installed Joomla 3 (latest version) and have noticed the following error message, when I want to log in:

"Your host needs to disable magic_quotes_gpc to run this version of Joomla!"

I just contacted Godaddy regarding this and they said that they do have magic_quotes_gpc enabled for all their servers, and it is not an option to turn it off.

Could someone please tell me how to turn off magic_quotes_gpc on my web server? I have already read some posts on many forums, but I wasn’t able to solve my problem :( I read somewhere that to disable this functionality I should modify the magic quotes directive in the php.ini. But how could I do this? Unfortunately, I’m not good with PHP, and I have no idea how to edit the php.ini file and I was wondering if there is any way to do this in .htaccess

Thank you in advance for your help!
Bruce
