The e-commerce.

register_globals in php.ini, security, and you!


Recommended Posts

Now that I have the webserver actually serving properly, I get this message when trying to get into the catalog folder:


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


Using global variables is a huge security risk. How can I go about getting osCommerce to work without enabling global variables? Can osCommerce work with local variables instead??

Apparently I can either change php.ini or set a .htaccess file with "php_value register_globals 1" in the oscommerce directories.


Anyone tried this yet?
