So, I'm working on some PHP scripts, and I never noticed this happening before, but on all of my PHP scripts, any POST variables automatically become regular variables.
If I have a post variable $_POST
passed through a web form, and then I look at the variable
for some reason it has the post variable, which is messing up variables, where $firstName has a value and I'm trying to give it some other value. Is there a setting that makes that happen, and is there a way to turn it off? I've been programming PHP for a good 4 years now, and have never really run into this problem, so I'm not sure what's going on.
