SeoToaster installation issues with GoDaddy shared hosting

When installing SeoToaster on a GoDaddy shared hosting, you may also run into the following issues:

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 system to overwrite them during installation.

To turn off Magic Quotes You may also 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
