So I even forgot I had this before they moved me...
All my sites are php driven so I'm a bit fubar at the moment.
I could have swore all I did before was copy the php into cgi-bin/php.cgi and copy the default php.ini file and turn on magic quotes and all was well.
I copied the default and turned on magic quotes but I guess there's something I've forgotten
I have force application type for file ABC to php this way all my sites (I know this is old school) are www.sitename.com/ABC/something and the ABC is actually a php script that parses everything after and makes the site like a uniform CMS.
Can someone give me the nutshell of what I have to do to make that work anymore, I sure hope I don't actually have to compile php5 or anything crazy work.
Never mind. force application type is now http-php5 (just had to add the 5)
