hi. i was so stupid.
i left a message on CCS forum while i am using CC.

i ve got a problem on my login form. (using php4.3, Aparche 2.0, MySQL 4.0 on Windows XP)
when i enter the user name and password the browser shows error message.

the error message is

"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"

i found out the error message is not so critical and where the error occured.

i changed my php.ini file under C:\WINDOWS directory and changed the line
"session.bug_compat_42" and "session.bug_compat_warn" to off. and restarted the server.

but when i run the test.php file to see changes i made, the php.ini file has not changed. the line "session.bug_compat_42" and "session.bug_compat_warn" were still on.

then i deleted the php.ini file and restarted the server but i can still see the test.php file. in other words, my php scripts work fine without php.ini file on C:\WINDOWS directory. i do have another same php.ini file under php directory but i dont think it really matters.

how can it be possible?

how do you guyz nomally make some changes on the php.ini file?

Leave only one copy of php.ini file on your disk and put it in c:\windows folder.
Additionally, in order for the CC generated scripts to work properly, you need to set register_globals to On.
