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.
