Maybe you should read about what you're installing before you install it. Register_globals is off in PHP 4.1+ by default, so your variables aren't created. You can use $_GET["text"] to get the variable, though. Or you can turn on register_globals in your php.ini and face the security consequences if you're scripts aren't written properly.

Okay, mystery to me, when I installed PHP 4.2.1 on Apache 2.0.35, the track_vars function, stopped working. a simple command like, example : file : default.php ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨ <? echo("$text"); ?> then I type in the address in ie6, like : http://127.0.0.1/default.php?text=this but it doesn't show anything. it becomes a blank page instead of echoing out "this". Now, I thought track_vars was set to "Off" but in php.ini, it stood that it always was on. So, now I'm stuck... I'm using the php4apache2.dll module, which I suppose may be the problem, but I don't think they would have forgotten this function in that file. Anyone got any idée's??? I kind of need that function to do multipages. johan ekström [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.dynamicduo.nu/ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
