To make a long story short --
I used Fantistico in cPanel to install WordPress 188.8.131.52.
The installation went fine, and WordPress is running.
The problem that I encountered is that every apostrophe in posts becomes doubled.
For example: Here's tryin' it one more time.
Becomes: Here''s tryin'' it one more time.
Those are two single apostrophes in a row, not a quotation mark.
I placed this line in the .htaccess file, but it didn't help:
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
At my request, my excellent host put this line into php.ini and
restarted Apache, but that didn't help, either:
magic_quotes_gpc = Off
Here is some additional server information:
Operating system Linux
Kernel version 2.6.9-11.ELsmp
Machine Type i686
Apache version 1.3.33 (Unix)
PERL version 5.8.7
PHP version 4.4.0
MySQL version 4.1.13-standard
cPanel Build 10.2.0-STABLE 83
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem?
