The e-commerce.

My Web Host has disabled register_gloabls permanantly on new server. What can i do?


Recommended Posts

today i logged into my shop to discover this error


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.


I searched the forums, found the problem i thought, easier enough to fix. however i phoned my web host server company and they have upgraded all their servers and...


"This is because our servers all have register_globals disabled. You will not be able to enable it. You will need to download and install the version of OSCommerce that does not require this function. The server your account is on has just been upgraded to newer hardware and software. This setting has been changed today for the server your account is on." The company is webcity.com.au by the way.


Is there a patch? or something i can do to get around this?


Help is appreciated.

have you check the link on the top of this webpage, called "Ads-On"??? I have seen few contribution how to fix your issue.

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.

You need to find what version you are using (look in tips)


I would suspect u have a template that are mostly MS2, if so myou could use Upgrading osC from 2.2 MS2 to 2.2 RC2a http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6654
