FAQ: How do I change register globals to OFF?

Post by molok » Tue Aug 23, 2005 12:13 am

Just open your .htaccess file and add this line in the end of it:

php_flag register_globals off

Code: Select all

# @version $Id: htaccess.txt,v 1.5 2005/01/22 23:00:27 spacemonkey Exp $
# @package Mambo
# @copyright (C) 2000 - 2005 Miro International Pty Ltd
# @license http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html GNU/GPL
# Mambo is Free Software

#  mod_rewrite in use

RewriteEngine On

#  Uncomment following line if your webserver's URL 
#  is not directly related to physical file paths.
#  Update YourMamboDirectory (just / for root)

# RewriteBase /YourMamboDirectory

#  Rules
php_flag register_globals off
In addition you may need to create (or edit) a php.ini file in your joomla! root directory.
The file should contain this line:
register_globals = off

Register Globals Emulation

In addition to turning off register globals, you should turn off register globals emulation.
Edit your globals.php file:
At about line 23 change
