Recommended Posts

anyone know how to turn [b]OFF[/b] register_globals on godaddy webhosting? putting the [b]php_flag register_globals off[/b] line in .htaccess has absolutely no affect.

thanks for the quick replies, guys. Had found the godaddy FAQ already and submitted a ticket (I think) to upgrade the client's godaddy service. Their existing service is PHP 4, and it doesn't accept php directives from .htaccess. It also doesn't have a system root below the public directory, and no way to restart apache even after creating the php.ini.

trillion gave me an idea though...
[code=php:0]do {
if(key($_GET)!="") eval("unset($".key($_GET).");");
}while(each($_GET));
[/code]

presto -- conflicting global variable eliminated. Any idea if this could cause any unforeseen consequences?
