OT: On-Rev issue (non-emergency)

Thanks Matthias, and thanks also to Shawn Beagle who contacted me off list.

I am frankly too scared to follow these instructions: the editor suggests I make a back up before editing anything, and I don’t really know how to do the restore. As a LiveCode person and very much not a server person I have a very strong feeling of not being in Kansas any more. So I guess I will have to wait for On-Rev support to wake up.

My nervousness is not helped by the fact that I don’t seem to have files like php.ini or .htaccess within the files I can see on the server. There is a htaccess.txt file but that belongs to Joomla which is the package telling me to turn off Magic Quotes - so why can’t it do the job itself? Confusion.

Sorry to be a scaredy-cat, but for all I know I could start World War 3 by hitting the wrong part of some file. 

Graham

As there’s nothing relevant that I can see in the cPanel and I have no real idea what this means, I need someone to tell me how to do it or to do it for me.
