View Full Version : Register Globals...again...
Sorry to bring this up again, but...
My hosting provider had decided to turn off Register Globals over the weekend. Upto that point everything worked OK (Demo). Now, after the change, it fails to launch, giving various errors.
They have provided a new (or old) php.ini file if required to override the new settings for the Register Globals and I have uploaded it to the root of my WHMCS directory - however I am still getting the same errors (blank pages, invalid license, etc.) - do I need to modify the index.php file or anything else for the override to take effect?
Thanks in advance.

Make a small test php page, and put this in it:
<? phpinfo() ?>
Then you can see whether Global_Registers is really on or not for your domain.
Another option is to put
php_value register_globals 1
in your .htaccess file
OK, so that shows that it is using the right php.ini file (the one I uploaded)... but some pages are still coming back with a "License key validation failed. Please contact support."
Just checked my profile, and the license dosen't expire any time soon, but I cannot submit a ticket it seems whmcs.com is having some resolution issues for me... i guess I'll wait till later to put in a ticket...
Thanks for your help.

If you have that licence key error, test and make sure you can access this website.. I had that too, looks like WHMCS was down. (not 100% sure that is the reason, just seemed to coincidental.)
Also make sure you upload the key.php file that was emailed to you, or download a new one from your customer area to you website..
Yeah, it looks like its working again (as is whmcs.com). Thanks to all for your help!

hi i am trying to install the demo, however "WHMCS requires Register Globals to be On for it function correctly. These can be enabled in a .htaccess or php.ini file in your WHMCS Directory."
i checked my <? phpinfo() ?> file and register_globals On. so whats the problem? i tried to put php.ini files everywhere with them on... but still it says that my globals isn't on.
Any suggestions would be great :)
have you tried contacting your host about this? Does your phpinfo() show that they are on? is that phpinfo in the same directory as the whmcs install?
