How can I activate the PHP register_globals sttings?
Posted by Sinan Esen on 01 May 2015 12:23 PM

The PHP setting 'register_globals' is OFF by default.

It is a willingness from the PHP community for safer website use:

 


"Perhaps the most controversial change in PHP is when the
default value for the PHP directive register_globals went from ON to OFF in PHP 4.2.0. [...] It was a difficult decision, but the PHP community 
decided to disable this directive by default."

- PHP.net

 

NB: You can read more about this at : http://php.net/manual/en/security.globals.php

 

We recommend that you leave this setting as the default, but we understand you may wish to use it. However, we can switch it on for you with a request to our support centre via email at support@openhost.co.nz.
