I'm tring to print the values of $_ENV using PHP 4.3.4 (and 4.3.8) by using the next code:
var_dump($_ENV);

The result of it is:
array(0) { }

While using phpinfo() function I'm getting all the information in the Environment section but still any call for the $_ENV variable returns an empty string:
echo $_ENV["HOST"] ==> Empty string.

I'm sure it worked in previous versions of php with the same code.

Any idea?

make sure your php.ini contains the sollowing setting:
variables_order = "EGPCS"
if the E is missing $_ENV will be empty

Does EGPCS stand for ENV, GET, POST, COOKIE, SESSION ??
