Problem: Double Apostrophes

  • To make a long story short —

    I used Fantistico in cPanel to install WordPress 1.5.1.3.

    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?
