What does this mean? "This function requires Apache to work"? It appears beneath both my .htaccess file and my .staccess file path which I have to type into the admin panel...

My register globals doesn't work either... I chucked some code Raven suggested to someone else
Code:
PHP_FLAG register_globals On
into the .htaccess file and that didn't fix it.

I guess my question is what do I have to ask my host to do in order to make this work.. Or, is there an alternate plan? Something about having to do CGI?

Those are .htaccess commands. .htaccess only applies to Apache. What web server are you running?

I honestly don't know.. I have two hosts. One who I use for my main site which works fine and another one which work provides.. I could ring up and find out what they use... Are there any other questions I should ask them when I call?

Operating System
Web Server (name and version)

I've asked the question and haven't gotten a response yet..

They did ask why I need "register globals" to be on, and how I knew that it wasn't. I didn't know how to answer. Why do I need register globals to be on?

For use with HTTP Authentication. It requires it.

Hey Raven, finally got my answers

"Solaris 9.
iPlanet Web Server (also known as Sun Java Enterprise Server) 6.0SP9 (which should be changing to
version 6.1 soon)
Currently PHP 4.3.10 although again, this will be upgraded soon.
MySQL 3.23.58

register_globals is set to off for security reasons ( see Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! for
more details )."

Can you suggest any workarounds? I have to use these guys because my school chose them. Sad

That's what .htaccess is for. You can override it there. That's the only place to override it.

So how do I override it? I'm confused. I've installed this thing before.. Maybe I need to go back and RTFM again.

Can you point me to a thread which deals with this?

Don't forget I'm also asking how to get around the "This function requires Apache to work" message which is appearing in NukeSentinel.

One of the biggest questions I'm asking, I guess, is should NukeSentinel work with the server I'm using?

Unless iPlanet Web Server honors .htaccess, then the answer is no. You have to be able to use .htaccess for the CGI Auth.

Well, the final answer is:

"No. The webserver doesn't support .htaccess commands. Authentication is via ACL's which can be
configured in the portal"

I guess that means I won't be using NukeSentinel..

I've still got the benefit of NukeSentinel stopping people from using various attacks haven't I? It's just that it won't ban ips and stuff.. Correct?

I also can't use http or CGI Authentication..

It will ban IP's as it always does, to the MySQL database. The banning to .htaccess was a caveat that stopped them from actually hitting inside your site. The biggest loss is to the extra protection of the admin.php file, but the rest of NukeSentinel(tm) should protect you.
