Nuts Nuts


Hi my friends,

I got so :roll: that I really lost,

I just send up a root server box from 1and1, and when I try

<? echo "helloworldID=$id"; ?>

my code can’t grap the id value from query string! it just print “helloworldID=”

any clues?

here is my phpinfo

Try using $_GET[“id”] instead of $id, I didn’t bother to look through your phpinfo but your register globals (or are they autoglobals? whatever) are probably turned off.


Hi Da,

that works! now I read through the phpinfo and the only one with global is
“register_globals” and it is off, how I can turn it on? do you have some clues? can you show me some pages which have this? thanks a lot.


Turning on your register globals is generally considered a large security hole. But if you insist go to your php.ini file and look for register_globals = Off and erase off and type on.
