The e-commerce.

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


Recommended Posts

Typical, loads of info, but none for my situation.


i have already had this problem with my /catalog folder so i corrected it.


Next i have installed a seperate sub domain and uploaded a template. However it comes up with the register global error. Therefore all the info on the web show add an php.ini folder to public_html but it comes up with a 500 internal error.


i have tried adding it to the subdomian itself but no luck.


any advice?

You will need to enable register_globals in the php.ini of your server.

It depends on the way your server is configured is my guess.

Normally register_globals is enabled in all hosts(otherwise you wouldnt be able to install oscommerce).

If you mentioned what type of host you are using shared or dedicated it would be helpful

For shared hosting i think you will need to contact support and request them to enable register_globals.

If you have root access you need to find the php.ini file yourself and change it.
