Question: How to switch the magic_quotes off?

Answer: To switch the magic_quotes function off you should make changes in the file php.ini on your hosting account.

File php.ini might be found in ISPmanager control board – Tools – File manager – php-bin

Write the following string in the file to switch magic_quotes for incoming data GET/POST/Cookie off:

magic_quotes_gpc = Off

Magic quotes for data that is incoming at the time of executing (for example, data from SQL, exec() etc.):

magic_quotes_runtime = Off

Using magic quotes in Sybase style (screening ‘ by using ” instead of \’):

magic_quotes_sybase = Off

If you have no possibility to make changes in server configuration you should use the file .htaccess as alternative. It is in the directory www/domain_name.

You should add the following string to the file:

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
