PHP Magic Quotes breaking Joomla
It seems that Magic Quotes are on by default for shared hosting packages. This means that the Joomla installer will not go past the initial checks. None of the usual htaccess or php.ini hacks seem to get rid.
Also, if the Installertron package is used, Joomla appears to install without issue, but Magic Quotes are still on and any forward slashes are repeatedly escaped, completely breaking layouts.
Any suggestions for turning them off?
