Helllo

Im wanting to install a script called Dolphin - http://www.boonex.com/products/ , but when i have come to install it, the installer says i need to acctivate magic quotes. I get this error ‘get_magic_quotes_gpc is Off, enable it’

I’ve contacted dreamhost and they have said i need to run a custom install of PHP5, but im not too savvy on this and don’t want to mess anything up.

I heard theres a way of altering php.ini file?

If anybody could help me out on this, it would be great.

It would appear that this is possible, even if not a wise idea. Hopefully, Boonex is careful about this.

Could you explain what you mean?

What are magic quotes?


#4

I am also wanting to install dolphin on one of my sites. I am a beginner in this magic quotes thing, I understand it was created for beginners and what not to not develop code that can be injected sql and all that.

I just need a easy step by step method to getting this feature turned on if possible?
