 Has anyone encountered this warning?

 Warning: Unknown: Your script possibly relies on a session side-effect
 which existed until PHP 4.2.3. Please be advised that the session
 extension does not consider global variables as a source of data, unless
 register_globals is enabled. You can disable this functionality and this
 warning by setting session.bug_compat_42 or session.bug_compat_warn to
 off, respectively in Unknown on line 0

 I seem to remember this happening before, but I don't remember the
 solution. As I remember, it wasn't really reporting an error, but
 something else. I just don't remember how I dealt with it before.

 I don't know how to set session.bug_compat_warn to off.

doesn't this work?:

        <?php ini_set('session.bug_compat_warn', 0); ?>

otherwise you'll have to set it in php.ini (or a .htaccess file)

IIRC it means your using session_register() .. which is depreciated and
will be dropped in 5.3 ... AFAIK best practices is not to use this function
but instead assing to the $_SESSION superglobal.


Two things:

1. Your solution worked. Setting --

<?php ini_set('session.bug_compat_warn', 0); ?>

-- worked!!! Thank you.

2. I don't use session_register(). So has to be something else, but I don't know what that might be.

Anyone have any ideas?
