Thank you for answer. I didn't expect ini_set('register_globals','Off') to work, that's why I had a look at the documentation. There should be PHP_INI_PERDIR, PHP_INI_SYSTEM but not PHP_INI_ALL in the table (so it's a mistake in the documentation).
Anyway it may be possible to use this, if the variables are unset. This is overload of course, because the variables are first set (because of register_globals="On" in php.ini) and are unset if I call ini_set('register_globals','Off'), but this could be a nice "feature", making it easier to work with register_globals="Off" while other old projects still work. Do you consider this a good idea? Does anything except performance speak against doing this manually?
