hi all

i tried this below code in my xampp in htaccess to disable magic quotes

php Ver 5.2.5

Code:
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
The result of phpinfo()

Code:
Directive		 Local value		Master value
magic_quotes_gpc	Off			On
Does the master value always remain "ON".

Or is it required to make the master value "OFF".

If yes then how can SET master value "OFF"

Secondly i would like to know whether it is mandatory to put the above line on top in htaccess
