Important! We recommend you turn OFF Magick Quotes to avoid '\' in templates when loading themes or modifying templates inline.
Create a php.ini file with the lines bellow (some hosting providers such as goddady require that you create a custom php5.ini and place it in the root of your domain.

magic_quotes_gpc = Off
magic_quotes_runtime = Off
magic_quotes_sybase = Off

CHMOD
Changing file/folder permission on a Unix/Linux system is called a "CHMOD". You can find an explanation of file permissions here. Giving them "write permission" is called "doing a CHMOD 755" or "a CHMOD 775", depending on the host.

CHMOD 777

Some hosts might require you to use CHMOD 777, although it is not recommended for anything more than a one-time need.
If you have to use CHMOD 777 in order to install SEOTOASTER, make sure to switch to a safer setting (775, 755 or even 644) once you are done installing.


Godaddy shared hosting users: A note for you
Hostgator shared hosting users: A note for you

Godaddy shared hosting Users this is a note for you!

We just installed an seotoaster on a godaddy shared hosting and got into the following issues:

  1. Permissions on files that are less than 2kb cannot be changed via FTP, to make it work anyway, add a bit of text in each of those files that cannot be chmoded, and re-upload them in place of the original ones... You will then be able to change permissions on them for the sytem to overwrite them during installation.
  2. You need to create a file called php5.ini and put it in the root / . it should read: magic_quotes_gpc = Off
    magic_quotes_runtime = Off
    magic_quotes_sybase = Off

Note: to change your PHP version from php4 to php5, here is what goddady says

To Change Your Default PHP Language

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. In the My Products section, select Hosting.
  3. Next to the hosting account you want to modify, click Manage Account.
  4. In the Content section of the Hosting Control Center, click the Programming Languages icon.

    step1

  5. Select PHP version you'd like to set as the default.

    step2

  6. Click Continue.
  7. Verify the listed changes, and then click Update.
  8. Your Language change is submitted. Please allow up to 24 hours for the change to be processed by the hosting server.

NOTE: Although PHP 5 is the most current version, many applications still require version 4. Therefore, making this update may cause some of your PHP files to run incorrectly.
