I recently uploaded osCommerce. As soon as it was uploaded I went to install it and I got this problem
FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable it!
Now, I was reading on the osCommerce forum and they said to create a .htaccess file and put php_value register_globals 1 in it. First off I know how to setup a .htacces. I tried creating one in notepad and I was able to create the file. Then I pasted php_value register_globals 1 in it saved it and uploaded it. When I upload it, the file disappears and when I try look at the site, it comes up with
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
So I have edit the .htaccess with nothing in it and upload it.
If anyone could help I would be very grateful!
