Don't have FTP


Recommended Posts

I have a problem to install oscommerce because I haven't got FTP to enable Catalog folder executable and its saying "Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory." Please tell how I can solve this problem in simpler way."

You need a new webhost if your current one does not offer a basic ftp option, sorry I know its not much use, but I would be complaing to my web host about this.

Yeah, what stu2000 said. You will need ftp access. There is a register_globals workaround, but that is the least of your troubles at the moment.

I'm sorry, but i cannot offer Free support via PM etc, and osCommerce forums prohibit me from putting any reference to paid support in my signauture.

However viewing my profile may provide links to my website or something like that which you may find useful.

I think the poster means they either can't access php.ini by FTP or that they don't have an FTP programme.


The first is simple - not many hosts give access to a local php.ini file, so you have to create your own with just this code in it:

register_globals = On

and then put it in the catalog, admin and install folders.


If the poster doesn't have an FTP programme then download FileZilla or WS FTP Home.
