View Full Version : LAMP turning of magic_quotes_gpc ?

September 1st, 2009, 11:16 PM

I am in the process of changing from WAMP to LAMP but I keep running into little snags.
I am trying to turn off the magic_qoutes_gpc and turn on the error reporting to all errors.

I searched my system for a php.ini file and found it in the apache2 folder.
changing the settings from
magic_quotes_gpc On to Off and restarting Ubuntu did not turn of the magic_quotes_gpc.

I tried a php.ini file in the directory that holds the php pages.
I did not really look into the .htaccess file yet because I really would like to solve this with a php.ini file.

I tried ini_set but that did not work neither.

Is anybody familiar with how to modify the php settings on Ubuntu ?

thank you very much
