PHP globals are turned off (by default) on SUSE 9.x. This is because they
are a security risk. If you want to enable PHP globals change the variable
'register_globals' to 'On' in /etc/php.ini

Subject: [SLE] PHP Globals not working on 9.0 ??


I have a weird situation. Suse Pro 9.0. I'm trying to get the following
simple php script to work as I start working on basic authentication, but
the AUTH_USER and AUTH_PW globals never seem to get set. What is funny is
that the script works just fine on my ancient mdk 7.2 box. Anybody
experience any similar problems? Any gotchas unique to the suse install I'm
missing?? You can check my phpinfo at I don't know
what do check next.


if ((!isset( $PHP_AUTH_USER )) || (!isset($PHP_AUTH_PW))) {

header( 'WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Private"' );
header( 'HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized' );
echo 'Authorization Required.';

} else {

echo "You entered $PHP_AUTH_USER for a username.<BR>";
echo "You entered $PHP_AUTH_PW for a password.<BR>";
