I try to declare the global variable with the:
global $variable = "";

and the variable is not seen in the other function.

Hi
Can you give us an example?
You mean like this?

$var = 'Name';

function function1
{
  global $var;
}
function function2
{
  global $var;
}


Thanks
Regards

autoglobales directive is set off in php.ini
It is bad idea to use global variables. But, one good to use these ( particulary define()ed constants ) is by include-ing/require-ing files.

this directive can be set on per directory level ( Linux/Apache )
