  • magic_quotes_gpc should be off??

    Hi, Im was planning on switching from phpbb to vbulletin.

    I did a vbulletin test on the hosting server to find out any errors before I can puchase it. It passed all the test but just one.

    It said "magic_quotes_gpc should be off for optimal performance, ask your host to change this in php.ini".

    Is this a big problem?

    Could you tell me what this is exactly?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff

    It's not a major issue. Honestly I don't know why we still have that in the test script.

        A few of my forums run with it OFF and a few with ON. None of them have any problems.

            For safety?

              Yes, but vB and Joomla disagree over which is safer.

              As a programmer, I prefer it OFF because then I don't have to do a lot of extra work on $_GET variables.

              Joomla says having it ON separates the lazy programmers from the good ones. heh
