Register_globals and Session problem

    Hi

    I've got a site running PHPv4.3.11 and the host has register_globals turned on but the webhost desperately wants it turned off.

    They've got a really ancient shopping cart in there which stores the cart in sessions but not in a database etc. The shopping cart is due to be replaced so I need a quick fix if possible.

    So the problem...

    User clicks to add an item to the cart
    • script registers the session
    • scripts adds the cart to the session
    • script adds item to the cart
    • script redirects to a new page
    • new page reads the session and recreates the cart

    If I get a dump of the cart just before the redirect I can see the contents but just after it's empty again.

    I tried setting session_write_close but in firefox it made no difference, in IE I got huge error messages about using obsolete functions.

    So, I'm guessing that there's something that needs to be set but I can't see it. Any ideas?

    Thanks Willy

    You wouldn't happen to have the table structure for those tables would you?
