PHP - register_globals off/on
I'm quite new to PHP and I have some questions on the register_globals setting. I have installed PHP version 4.3.6 on a Windows XP machine that has no network/Internet connection.
I wrote a little file that uses the phpinfo() function to show me my settings. register_globals is set to off. I pulled up my php.ini file and changed register_globals from "Off" to "On" but my settings list still says register_globals is "Off" for both Local Value and Master Value. How do you change the register_globals setting?
I've heard that it's best to have register_globals set to "Off" for security reasons. If that's the case, how do you change your programs so that they'll still function?
