need to register globals on?

hi, On the download page it can be read that register_globals should be on. Do I really need to set this on?! This option can be the source of security vulnerability (in case of half-baked codes) and if it possible I would avoid using this "feature". thanks.

Hi lisalin,

No, register_globals is not required and should be disabled. What URL recommends that it be enabled?
