I want to set some php_flag in the .htaccess file sofar i have had no luck.
the site is running on a virtual box and i do not have access to the php.ini nor do i have shell access.
however the site needs to have register_globals switched off i also want to turn magi quotes off cause its messing up the output.

could someone post me a .htaccess file with those flags in it turned off so i can see if it will wiork on my site ?

Just add the following line to .htaccess

php_flag register_globals 0

make sure .htaccess has a "." in front of it and that your ISP allows you to st values in .htaccess

Hmmm typo time... The sentence in the previous post should end with "...allows you to set values in .htaccess"

Not my day for reading things..... I've just noticed you wanted magic quotes off as well

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off

Open in new window

php_flag register_globals off
