New Joomla install on the new CGI platform.

I'm attempting to install a fresh Joomla 3 in the new CGI platform
Fell at the first hurdle.
Need to turn off magic quotes. Would normally do this with a local php.ini file. This isn't supported on the new platform!
Has anybody managed to get this working on the "new" platform?
Thanks in advance fro your help.

Re: New Joomla install on the new CGI platform.

Joomla 3 installs OK on Hostopia if you add the following…
[code=.htaccess]
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc 0
php_flag register_globals 0[/code]
to .htaccess to disable those settings. I suggest adding these lines to the .htacess in /public.
