    PHP version 5.3.18
    cPanel Version 11.34.0 (build 9)

    The pre-installer check screen on Joomla 3.0.2 shows that Magic Quotes is ON, yet doing a PHP INFO phpinfo(); shows that both local and system values of Magic Quotes to be OFF. A php.ini file in the local root has these values also set to OFF.

    The Host sysadmin shows it being OFF too.
    In the PHP configure command it shows: '--enable-magic-quotes'

    I deleted the checking code for Magic Quotes in setup.php and install worked fine.
    The Joomla System Information panel also shows Magic Quotes to be ON.

    On another cPanel server I am using in Australia there are no issues, but the host is running a different PHP version:
    PHP Version 5.3.10
    cPanel Version 11.34.0 (build 9)

    Any ideas?

    Joomla Forum on this issue:

    This may also be causing a related problem where ALL HTML EDITING that has quotes is being backslashed making editing articles impossible.
