Escaped Double Quotes

I have a new Geeklog 1.3.9 installation on my web site:


And it appears to be running pretty well.... BUT

It seems that every time I hit a page on the site for the first time I get something very strange and ugly... It looks like THIS


Instead of THIS


Hitting the reload button on the browser will bring the page up in all its glory, and I won't see the problem again... until I go to another part of the site for the first time, with a given client.

The difference between the "bad" html and the "good" html appears to be that in the "bad" html, all the double-quotes (") have been escaped with a backslash.

I've run diff on my config.php and lib-common.php with the files from the tarball, and it doesn't look like I put in any mismatched quote marks in there. Or anything else that isn't supposed to be there.

Is there a patch for this? What am I missing?

Make sure you have magic_quotes_runtime set to "off" in your php.ini. But I guess it already is, or you would get the "bad" display on every page.

Also, you seem to be running Apache 2.0.40 - you may want to upgrade that to the current version (the same goes for your PHP version). We had a few reports of problems with early versions of Apache 2 and PHP, but I haven't heard of any such problems recently.

bye, Dirk


Actually upgrading Apache and PHP to fix this issue is something I will have to wait for my friendly neighborhood sysadmin to get around to, as I don't own the server.

Thanks for the information. I was afraid I'd made a mistake in setting up GeekLog itself.
