Why do you want to turn it on?
If you read/searched the other posts here on 3.0 forum you would see it needs to be off.

@Sakunne
Thank you for your method but, as has been stated many times elsewhere in respect of making changes to PHP settings, it is entirely server/host dependent as to what you are permitted to change and how you make these changes.

I just spent hours fighting my godaddy server with this issue.

I just added these lines in my php5.ini ::


magic_quotes_gpc = Off
magic_quotes_runtime = Off
magic_quotes_sybase = Off
extension=pdo.so
extension=pdo_mysql.so

display_errors = Off
error_reporting = Off

The first part concerns the magic quotes and the second part the display error.

Also I created a phpinfo.php5 file to verify the setting:

just use notepad, copy this into it and save as phpinfo.ph

<?php

// Show all information, defaults to INFO_ALL
phpinfo();

?>

So solving the magic quote was not sufficient, I also had to address the display error to finaly have it working.

Have fun.

Marc
