security assist does not rely on the register_globals setting being enabled.

it does rely on the $_GET, $_POST and $_SESSION supper globals though.

the register_globals = on setting only creates a friendly copy of a supper global that is set.

for example, if a session is set:
$_SESSION['mySession'] = "my var";

with regerster_globals = on, you could echo the session using either:

or the friendly variable name $mySession:


turning registeer_globals off prevents the friendly variable $mySession from being created.

The register_globals setting is deprecated in php 5 and is not replied upon in Security assist

register_globals is not the cause of whatever issue you are encountering.

the first thing i would suspect is that the server will not properly store sessions, to test the servers session management, use the session test page from the following thread:
