Hi, here I am again :o(
After almost a week of reading and plucking up courage to have a go at the shopping cart I decided today was the day and installed os commerce. I followed the tutorial step by step and really thought I hadn't done anything wrong. However, when it had finished I tried to get in and got this message -

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.

I have not got a clue what to do. I dont understand anything about PHP or PHP.ini or htaccess file.

I have done search after search but I'm still clueless.
Sorry for being a pain but could anyone help me in really basic language please?

PHP.ini is a file on the server that configures features of PHP. In this case the script you are using needs register_globals on, otherwise it won't work correctly. I believe vodahost has this turned off for security reasons, but they might turn it on if you ask
