PHP in safe mode

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

PHP in safe mode

We are about to start a large project using PKP. We have installed it on a variety of macines and have been 'playing' with the kit. We just tried it where PHP is runningin safe mode and we find that we get errors in various places. Is there a fix to this?

If you are running PHP with register_globals off, you can turn them on by putting an .htaccess file in the directory where you are running an application that requires it. You should have this in your .htaccess:

php_flag register_globals on

Please note that register_globals is going to be depracated (i.e. turned off by default) in the newer versions of PHP, because it often leads to security bugs.
