The e-commerce.

Installation Errors


Recommended Posts

Am new to php and oscommerce and though this is probably quite simple I have'nt got past installtion. Opening install.php gives me:


FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable it!


What and where is "register_globals"? phpinfo tells me that php.ini is set to /etc! And its point is?

If this install is local (on your own computer operating as a web server) just search for php.ini files. If this is a website on a shared server then you're out of luck, as the hosting company controls the php.ini, and I doubt they'll set register_globals to 'on'. There is a workaround for this via a .htaccess file in the root web directory - just do a saerch of these forums for the code. By the way, your web hosting company may not like you doing this!
