Hi, there.  I'm pretty new to PHP and MySQL, but the first thing I'm met with when trying to install PrestaShop is it's telling me that my Register Globals are on when they should be off.  I've tried researching this but don't understand how or where to change this in my PHP settings.  Can someone please let me know where I can turn this off?

I asked my web host and got a really great answer:


In order to turn off register_globals, you should create and use files named php.ini. A php.ini file should contain the following lines:

register_globals = off
post_max_size = 20M
memory_limit = 80M
upload_max_filesize = 20M
max_execution_time = 120
expose_php = off
session.save_path = /tmp
mysqli.default_socket = /tmp/mysql5.sock

The first line turns off the "register_globals" setting, and the rest of the lines are needed for compatibility reasons.

Note that php.ini files do not work recursively, and you need to add the file in each directory where you want the PHP behavior changed.


I tried this and now my register globals are turned off and it lets me proceed to the next step.
Hope this helps anyone else having this problem!

if using share hosting, just edit .htaccess file and add list line

php_flag register_globals off

It must be php.ini, are you sure that php5.ini is being grabbed by the server as configuration file?
