Installing 2.2 and the register globals fun


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Wondering if you can help. I just downloaded oscom 2.2, when I navigated to the install page all I get is this:


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


So, obviously I go into my php.ini file, and sure enough, globals was off. So I turned the on, restarted my apache server, and then tried to load the page. Still the same error. I double checked that I had saved php.ini with the changes, restarted my whole computer, brought up all my services, and still the same error. Any ideas?

Create a phpinfo(); file, look at the first table.. bottom line it says WHICH php.ini it is actually reading... and it wouldn't surprise me if you were editing another ini :)

I did the phpinfo() and it WAS pointing to the file I had edited. Just for good measure though, I search my hard drive for all instances of php.ini. I found another one tucked in a totally different filebase, but modified the register_globals setting in it anyway, and now the install worked *shrug* I guess I really don't need to understand as long as it worked! :P Thanks for the help, I'm sure I'll be posting a lot in the future. It's nice to see a forum with people who actually help! Yay! :P
