PHP on Fedora Core 2


Hey, this might be a silly question but im having a hell of a time trying to turn "register_globals" ON (I know the security issue...)

I have PHP and Apache2 installed (Fedora Core2) and my php.ini in /etc/

I can change certain things (like Y2k Compliance, just picking random things), but register_globals will NOT turn on, no matter what i do, or where i put php.ini. (im using vi to edit the ini )

also no matter what i do in the INI file it wont turn on
register_globals = On
-register_globals = On
register_globals = on
-register_globals = On

I restart apache every time i make a change and still nothing, I cant turn on display errors either. Does anyone know why this is happening? I appreciate any response as ive been fighting with this for a couple of days now
thanks!

My php.ini file is /etc/php4/apache2/php.ini

The proper format seems to be:
register_globals = On
for the ini.

I would do a recursive find in /etc for php.ini, in case php's grabbing another one,
then a grep in /etc for php.ini to find any config files.

Thanks for the response.
Code:
[dexter@testb0x etc]$ locate php.ini
/etc/php.ini
[dexter@testb0x etc]$

Okay, wow , I am dumb. Sorry for the thread, i finally went through and checked every line in php.ini. I thought registergloabals at the TOP of the file was the one to uncomment and use, then i read all of it and register globals is down in the middle and off. Sorry aagin and thanks for your time. it works now
