OK, I know this question has been possed many times before but none of the solutions have worked for me. A little history. I OSC based store front went down a few weeks back and it shows this error: Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory. The rest of my site works fine (non os commerse bassed). I tried changing the htaccess and adding register_globals = 1 or on or what ever but then I just get a 500 error page. Now, I'm pretty new at all this, so I need a step by step (babysteps) guide on how to fix this. If someone that can help me needs more info on my software versions or what ever, I'll try to answer them to the best of my abilities.
