Question: Will Geeklog work with register_globals=off?

Answer: Geeklog 1.4.0 and later versions will work just fine with register_globals = off. Keep in mind, however, that some plugins and other add-ons still require it to be "on".


If you can't set register_globals=on in php.ini (e.g. because you don't have access to it) you can try to create a .htaccess file in your document root that has this line in it:

php_flag register_globals on

This will only work when your webserver is Apache (does a similar option exist for IIS?) and when it's configured such that it lets you override the register_globals setting.
