Dear Valued Customers,

In an effort to improve web server security, we have started disabling PHP's register_globals function on our web servers. The register_globals function has been depreciated by PHP for several years, and several new scripts will refuse to function with it enabled. If your site requires register_globals, we recommend updating, or patching your site's scripts. However, if that isn't possible, register_globals may be enabled on a per-site basis using .htaccess.

In order to enable register_globals, please create a new or modify an existing .htaccess file within your domain's root directory. Then add the following line to the file: php_value register_globals 1
