http://php.net/manual/en/security.magicquotes.php

Because PHP magic quotes were deprecated in 5.3 and totally removed in 5.4

 

Lates versions are 5.4.11 and 5.3.21

 

Your server is using a rather ancient version 5.2.

 

Sometimes in your host control panel you can select PHP versions.

 

The reason its bad is a lot of plugin authors use really really old copy+pasted code that relies on magic quotes being enabled, so when you switch to a modern version of php the plugin goes kaboom ;)

 

If you are able to switch versions and 5.4 is selectable, try it out it uses about a quarter of the memory that 5.2 used.

oh, this is great! so, i had a choice of PHP 5.4 and  PHP 5.4 (Single php.ini)

 

 

because the tech guy said (6:46:56pm) Derek W.: "Go with the single ini"
 
is that right? thank you very much.

I have no idea what he means by single ini, must be the way they have it setup, go with what he says ;)
