A noobie question here so apologies.
I am trying to access http://127.0.0.1/shop/catalog/admin/install.php on a local installation of OSCommerce. Nothing difficult, I have confirmed Xampp is working.
However I get the following error message:
Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory.
Now I am stumped. I have looked at php.ini and php5.ini in the PHP directory and changed the register_globals tag to on but still it doesn't work. I don't know enough about .htaccess files to have a go there.
Can anyone offer any advice?
