PayPal EC for OSCommerce V2.24 and Register Globals off


Recommended Posts

I had to move my OSCommerce to a Windows 2008 server (+PHP5) at the ISP, and only have the possibility to run with Register_Globals = off


I have installed the addon Register_Globals_Off_Workaround (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5729),

and everything is running smoothly, except one thing:


I'm using the Paypal-addon: PayPal EC for OSCommerce V2.24 (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5687), and it just gives me one issue:


When redirecting to Paypal and the loading page (ppeb.php) shows: "PayPal server is processing, please wait..." , it also writes:


Warning: Unknown: Your script possibly relies on a session side-effect which existed until PHP 4.2.3.

Please be advised that the session extension does not consider global variables as a source of data, unless register_globals is enabled.

You can disable this functionality and this warning by setting session.bug_compat_42 or session.bug_compat_warn to off, respectively.

in Unknown on line 0



Hope someone have a hint to make the warning disappear.

you can use disable the session.bug_compat_42 or session.bug_compat_warn the following way:

open php.ini file and add the following:

php_flag session.bug_compat_warn off

Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.
