Option 1: Enable register_globals in the php.ini
Option 2: Replace $PHP_SELF by $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']

Because it seems out that I cant write to php.ini, where should I save as a copy of it?
php.init explains:

PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).

Does that mean that I should save as it under htdocs? But I cant write under it, too! And when I do php programs I should save all programs under htdocs where I cant write?!?

I'm really newbie in Mac and php!
