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.
