Hello, I have had an email off my Host. and they have made changes, now shop will not load.

getting error message



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


and the email read




This is to let you know that as from 1 Feb 2006 the setting


in php will be disabled.


This setting has been disabled by default for sometime as it poses security

issues in certain php scripts.


Unfortunately if you site needs the "register_globals" enabled you will need


recode the script.


If you are using third party scripts, you are advised to get the most recent

release, as most well known php scripts have already been recoded to work


the new php default settings.


We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you.


You need to contact the distributors of the software with the error message.


should be able to provide you with the correct scripts that will work with

register_globals disabled, as many php scripts that need register_globals


vulnerable to hackers.


i have tried a contribution that i believed might sort it out,




Register Globals Richard Bentley 16 May 2004


This is a patch that will remove the need to enable 'register_globals' in the php.ini file. In fact, once it is applied,, register_globals MUST be disabled otherwise it will not work.


Read the README file for details


Feedback on this is highly encouraged.


but doesnt seem to be right.


Please help.

You need to enable register_globals. I would suggest uninstalling the contribution, first.

Always BACK UP your files and your database before making any changes. Before asking questions, check out the Knowledge Base. Check out the contributions to see if your problem's solved there. Search the forums.
