    resolved [RESOLVED] Turning magic quotes off in xampp

    Hi all,
    here's my plight de jure. I want to configure xampp to match the remote server I will eventually place my webpages on. I have tried changing the
    php.ini file in the php folder of xampp to no avail. I went in and set the following:

    magic_quotes_gpc = off
    magic_quotes_runtime = Off
    magic_quotes_sybase = Off

    then I backed out
    shut off the computer;restarted, restarted xampp; I then checked the phpinfo.php file; it still shows magic_quotes_gpc = on. Apparently the issue is that the php module(server) doesn't always check the settings in the php.ini file.... if indeed that is the issue.

    Any suggestions.
    Grateful for your response,

    Check your phpinfo output to see which php.ini file is actually being used, and make sure that is the one you are changing. (Sometimes you end up with multiple files in different places.)
