Question: php doc stresses that its a security risk to set register globals on. Yet CCS manual says you should set register globals=on - otherwise you'll be unable to proceed past the login page. Comments? Is there a way to keep register globals off and still use CCS application security?? (I'm evaluating CCS and am puzzled by this design tradeoff.). Thanks - Stan.

CodeCharge Studio (CCS) can be used with register_globals=off. It was our previous product, CodeCharge (CC) that did not allow this.
It is also secure to use CCS with globals=on. The code is properly written and we are not aware of security issues there.

Though I will try to obtain an additional confirmation on this just to be sure.

Thanks for the update. CCS so far looks (and works) like a remarkable product. The documentation is also excellent. That advice about register globals came out of the CCS 2.1 manual (pdf, latest download I think). Maybe in the next CCS manual rev, revise that statement. User Guide, Section 6.6, page 131.
