    Comment-out, using semicolons (;), any comments in your
/web/conf/php5.ini file that begin with the hashmark (#), and then
also comment-out (;) the magic_quotes_gpc line.

    That's typical of GoDaddy.  Not only will they do nothing about it
(if they are even able to figure it out), but they'll give you bad
advice.  This is a public peer-support mailing list.  We cannot (and
will not) fix things for people.  Further, if GoDaddy is responsible
for the maintenance of the machine (and they probably are, as I
presume it's a shared hosting environment), they need to fix it.
They're the ones who screwed it up in the first place.
