I did search here, and found out that I need this to be set by an admin for me as various methods of enabling it aren't available as a sub-user.
I would downgrade to 2.5, which would be good enough, however the features of 3.0 such as cross-device responsiveness and faster user management are something I would find essential for my site.
I was wondering if I could have it enabled, but I also might suggest that the official Joomla installation sticky is changed to reflect the new versions, it's all fine except that it should tell you what to do for 3.0 and 2.5 respectively.
Same thing here, we just can't run joomla 3 on this host... I'm disappointed.
You can run 3.0 you just have to request Bondings or another account/host administrator turn off magic quotes. There is no need to be disappointed and I'm sure the staff will help you as soon as they possibly can.
I know that Bondings has turned off magic quotes for at least one person but I have also seen a lot of people recently asking magic quotes to be turned off without any response from Bondings so I would not wait for him to come along and do it.
If Mr.B doesn't handle this soon then just try making a php.ini file to turn it off.
It's not possible to edit the php.ini file.
No the above doesn't work, we don't have access to that API.
That is good news Qantas94Heavy. I didn't know about .user.ini files. .user.ini files was introduced in PHP 5.3 so it doesn't work for me on server 2 but server 4 has PHP 5.3.22. Sad that we didn't know this earlier because there has been a lot of people asking about it.
I suppose php.ini must be disable for security reasons (don't know in which servers but at least it seems in server 2 -as for previous message- and 4 -I can confirm that-, and I bet server 3 too).
I didn't knew about .user.ini but what I realize is that it is much safer than php.ini because you have control over far less directives with .user.ini and besides doesn't override all the configuration as php.ini does (any directive you don't configure in a php.ini file gets default values).
Besides .user.ini file works as .htaccess in the sense that the configuration is inherited by subfolders. On the other hand php.ini configuration is not inherited (though the configuration with suPHP_ConfigPath in suPHP servers -if it hasn't been disabled- is inherited on subfolders).
^^^^ Ok. I will try what you said in my next project, though I'm not sure how soon that will be.
Thanks for the input.
