When installing OsCommerce for the first time you may receive this error:
Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory.
To enable register_globals for your account, you will need to edit the .htaccess file in your OsCommerce root directory. Open your .htaccess file (it is a hidden file in your public_html folder) and comment out this line:
php_value register_globals 1
To comment out a line just put a # sign before it, example:
#php_value register_globals 1
Also, you will want to change mod_php4.c to mod_php5.c. If you have made these changes and are still receiving the error message, please contact our support team and they will be happy to assist you further.
