I have reinstaled computer (now XP and last version of PHP 4.3.1).
Scripts that was working before (I use IIS build in XP) does not work not. Concrete GET metod does not transfer variables.

I call script 'script.php?var1=aaaaa&var2=bbbbb' and in script are var1 and var2 not assigned :(

(issset(var1) return false)

Can you help me, please?
thanks, Michal

Try $_get['var1']

In a little more detail:

Your old script relied on 'register_globals = on' in php.ini. However, it was found this was insecure, so for quite some time now the default is for register_globals to be off.

So, var1 is still available, but you have to reference it as $_GET['var1']. (NOT $_get['var1'] - variables are case-sensitive in PHP).

For post variables, use $_POST['varname'], and for $PHP_SELF you now use $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']
