I am installing Joomla. It reported that magic_quotes_gpc is switched on so I went to check out php.ini. In there it's showing as off. I did a bit of googling and it turns out the server could be reading a different php.ini file and to check the 'Loaded configuration' section of phpinfo. So I did.
It reports that it is loading the same file I looked at, and it (phpinfo) also reports magic_quotes_gpc as being on.
Does anyone know what could be causing two seperate entities (joomla setup and phpinfo) to report it as 'On' but php.ini shows it as off?
EDIT: I figured out what was going on. There was an error earlier in php.ini which was causing the server not to parse the rest of the file.
