Install fails on Step 2. Fatal error: Call to undefined function do_magic_quotes_gpc() in /administrator/components/com_oscommerce/includes/functions/compatibility.php on line 33
People who get this error. The problem solved beneath.
You should not be running with PHP 6.0. First of all, it's an unreleased test version, and is not considered ready for any kind of production use. Second, osC makes use of many of the functions that PHP is removing in PHP 6.0, among them get_magic_quotes_gpc() (there seems to be some discussion about putting that one back in). Read this:
. As of PHP 5.3, they will generate "deprecated" errors, warning you to upgrade your code.

I followed your suggestion and went on replacing compatibility.php and a series of other files (html_output.php, application_top, and others) and ended with a crippled installation. The process was quite cumbersome. What php version do you use? What is the recommended versions?
