Here's my suggestions:
magic_quotes_runtime Off 
magic_quotes_gpc Off 
register_globals Off 
display_errors On for debugging, Off for production 
1. The setting for magic_quotes_runtime generally doesn't matter;
PmWiki forces magic_quotes_runtime to 'off' when it runs.
2. Similarly, the actual setting of magic_quotes_gpc isn't important,
as PmWiki knows how to accommodate either setting.
3. Register globals should always be off, if at all possible.
4. Generally I leave the php.ini setting for this alone, and manually
set the value of display_errors in local/config.php if I'm
interested in troubleshooting a problem.
ini_set('display_errors', 0); # disable error display
ini_set('display_errors', 1); # enable error display
Hope this helps,
