Quote by Tocotoco: Register Globals is a bad way to program and they all know that but some scripts still insist on using it even thought the entire php comunity has said DONT USE register_globals=on

This is covered both in the FAQ and on our Security Page.

Looks like register_globals is still off. For the Account Information, Geeklog will take you to "usersettings.php?mode=edit". If register_globals is off, the "mode=edit" bit will not be passed and Geeklog will take you back to the index page.

As I've said before, you can check the current status of register_globals on the info.php output.

Php.ini was set "on" on global. it was even set with safe mode "off" as well and does not work. Any files I could re-load with the same installation and where? also, do we need safe mode on or off on php.ini?mine is set off for now as well

The Safe Mode setting doesn't matter - Geeklog should work with it being on or off. Also, the problem you described doesn't seem to have anything to do with safe mode settings.

FWIW, I can log into your site just fine (using the Moderator account) and even get to the Account Information page without a problem.

Dirk, my server has register_globals on, but on GL install it says its not on, and that it needs to be on. Then the install works fine. Is that going to be a problem?

To my knowledge, the install script has always been right when it says that register_globals is not on, so you better double-check.

The install script itself will work with register_globals being on or off, but Geeklog requires it to be on. So, yes, that will be a problem ...

bye, Dirk
