Magic quotes problem

bplaced has upgraded to PHP 5.3, but magic quotes have been depreciated.
So having them on just makes it useless because it undo’s itself everytime.

Information about this according to this post. … #pid464073

Hope you can turn it off, since the only difference would be that turned of = working magic quotes and turned on = non-working magic quotes.

Best regards, Robin

2 days and still no response ?
Where’s the support staff :neutral_face:

Almost a week further and still no notice about this…
I find this highly disturbing especially for a site so highly recommended as bplaced.

That no one could even post a small “thank you for telling us” or “we are working on it” that i atleast have some form of confirmation that this actually got through to you people…
But no, i’ve been without any response for 6 days now and it really has hurt my trust in bplaced’ support organisation.

Hi, look at


This feature has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 6.0.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged.[/quote]

thats the reason why its turned off. You must what till the Script is updated.


The reason is bplaced still has magic quotes on…
Which means it does the normal and then reverses it due to php 5.3
This is the same as not having magic quotes in php 5.2 and below…

Disable Magic quotes and that will solve the issue…
For a support staff member you are not only late but the answer is useless…

Additional information ( Perhaps you understand now ).

implicit_flush Off Off
include_path . .
log_errors Off Off
log_errors_max_len 2048 2048
magic_quotes_gpc On On Must be turned off…
magic_quotes_runtime Off Off
magic_quotes_sybase Off Off
mail.add_x_header Off Off


true, magic_quotes is still enabled and will not be turned off unless PHP 6.0 at bplaced, this is due to the massive amount of software which still requires that feature.

You may of course disable it, by creating a file named .php.ini - put it in your root-directory or the directory you wish the effect for and insert the following text:

magic_quotes_gpc = off


Thanks for understanding the problem, explain the situation and give me a good piece of advice.
It has worked and everything now works as should.

Best regards
