Hello Guys, Many of you must be excited to try out the new Joomla 3 for your websites. Yeah, i should admit, the new version is quite awesome as compared to 2.5 . Also it has lots of new features. Now i am gonna cut short about this Joomla awesomeness talk and come straight to the point.
Many of you must have gone through the "Magic Quote GPC Off - No
" problem in the first step of installation. I bet you must have coz most hosting company has Magic Quotes turn On. If you encounter such problem, what will you do? Raise a ticket or call your hosting company to turn it off, NO.. We can turn that thing off, just for your Joomla installation only, Yes, you heard it right.
What you need to do is create a file called php.ini
and add the following contents in it
magic_quotes_gpc = Off
session.save_path = "/tmp"
Save it and then upload this php.ini file to your Joomla installation folder. That is, if your Joomla files is in the root of your server, you need to upload this php.ini file at public_html/installation folder. That's it. Now check your Installation, it should work.
If it doesn't work, please leave a comment...
You can download the php.ini file from this thread as i have attached it for you..
