PHP error message

Last Modified: 2014-09-02
I've been using $_SESSION var on this site.  But now I'm getting weird results.

My variable ($_SESSION['Last_Page']) is showing the wrong variable.   I have 2 pages Space_Display and Space_Edit.  They both call "Street_Print.php".  "Street_Print" executes a print inclusion.  I've got rid of the print logic, and the session variable still get;s set to "Space_Edit".  

I'm getting the following error if I select certain pages in a certain order.

Warning: Unknown: Your script possibly relies on a session side-effect which existed until PHP 4.2.3. Please be advised that the session extension does not consider global variables as a source of data, unless register_globals is enabled. You can disable this functionality and this warning by setting session.bug_compat_42 or session.bug_compat_warn to off, respectively in Unknown on line 0

The page is hosted on a remote server that I have no control of (HOSTING24.COM)

I've googled "register_global" and it tells me to change the servers php.ini

After more research, will this code work in my "index.php" and flow through all the pages?
