The e-commerce.

Trouble in Install Land!


Recommended Posts

It is settled then...

My hosting company's tech support replied:


The php configuration is set with register_globals disabled for security reasons. In a shared hosting enviornment it is VERY insecure to have register_globals enabled since it would allow other to access the global variable defined by other customers. We cannot change this configuration, we recommend you find an alternative software package or seek support for the package so that it does not require register_globals.


Oh Well!

Same from my hosting company....BUT I really like what I've seen from oscommerce.


Anyone know of a workaround, and seeing as PHP from V4.2 onwards has deprecated register_globals and has it off by default, soon everyone will be running into this issue...
