On some servers you need to turn off magic quotes before you can install Joomla 3.0

When trying to install Joomla 3.2.3 add this line to the htaccess.txt file

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off

and then rename it to .htaccess

This php.ini file needs to be uploaded to the installation directory of the Joomla3 files

magic_quotes_gpc = Off

session.save_path = "/tmp"

IF this does not work create a htaccess file and put in the root of the site

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
php_flag magic_quotes_runtime off
php_flag magic_quotes_sybase off


After the installation of Joomla 3 has been successful you need to turn magic quotes back on.

Put this php ini file in the root of the site:

magic_quotes_gpc = Off

If you are using Admintools htaccess file creator then you need to add this code to Custom dot htaccess rules at the top of the file:

<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_ConfigPath /home/YourUserName/public_html/
<Files php.ini>
order allow,deny
deny from all

You may also need to add this to the bottom of the htaccess file if you still receive the error message:

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off 

You may also need to add the name of the Default Template if it is not as supplied or the layout is distorted



Make sure if using Admintools that the:

Then create your new htaccess file
