register globals with a php.ini file in folder

I realize that it is a stupid thing to do but I have to enable register globals in a directory and ALL sub-directories.

I know this can be done with .htaccess but I also heard that I could put a file called "php.ini" in the folder.

How can I do this?  What should I place in the php.ini file of the directory?

You would probably need a full php.ini file. Depending on the webhost you are using some might not allow this functionality and some will only allow you to use .htaccess but anyways...

The command to turn this on in the php file is:

register_globals = on

Custom php.ini affects only the current folder it is residing into and not the sub directories. You will need separate php.ini files into each sub directories.

Instead put the following line in .htaccess and it will affect all the sub directories too.

php_flag register_globals On
