That option needs to be set by the host. If they won't set it for you, then add this line to a new file and save the file as .htaccess

php_value register_globals 1

If you already have such a file, just add that line to it. Place the file in the root directory and it should work.


Permissions are specific to each file/directory so you need to change them by right clicking on them in your ftp program and selcting properties or chmod. You may also have an option to set them via your hsots control panel.

If this is a new site and you haven't modified any of those files with contributions then the answer is 'Yes'.


If you have already modified those files then you will have to use the original Register Globals Patch contribution, where all instructions are pasted line by line and page by page (takes a lot longer)
