First install of Joomla 3.1. Magic Quotes gpc off problem (Westhost hosting)

I have a reseller account on the old Westhost Sitemanager.

I needed to install Joomla 3.1 on one of my sites. I ran into a problem where the install wanted “magic quotes gpc off”

The php.ini file is in the /etc folder on that version of Westhost’s old site manager control panel (Not the new cpanel. )

I was working with their support and we couldn’t quite get it right.

I found a solution that worked at

We needed to put the following two lines in the php.ini for that VPS.

magic_quotes_gpc = Off
session.save_path = “/tmp”

That worked and allowed me to proceed to the next phase of the installation..
