Magic Quotes is a process that escapes incoming data to the PHP script. Joomla 3.0 requires to disable Magic quotes from your host. Every hosting company has a different procedure to turn magic quotes off.

2. Download the file php.ini to your desktop
3. Open the php.ini file with any text editor and add the following code:

; Magic quotes for incoming GET/POST/Cookie data.
magic_quotes_gpc = Off
; Magic quotes for runtime-generated data, e.g. data from SQL, from exec(), etc.
magic_quotes_runtime = Off
; Use Sybase-style magic quotes (escape ? with ? instead of \?).
magic_quotes_sybase = Off

4. Save the file and rename it php5.ini
5. Upload the php5.ini file to your server.
6. Login to the GoDaddy account.
