I'm fairly new at PHP but up to this point I've been able to fix problems I've come across. My problem is I get this warning at the bottom of my members page after logging in. If you refresh that page it disappears. Here's the warning:

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 have just finished moving this from a different server however they both say in the cpanel that they use the same version of PHP. I didn't have this problem on the last server. I have no idea what this warning stems from.

I also had another error that didn't happen on the last server but did on this one. It was Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): but I fixed that.

I guess my questions are how do I get rid of that top warning and why would this work on one server and not the next? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

this is an easy but hard fix.
If you are using the session_register("name"); You need to upgrade it to the $_SESSION = "1";. that is if you built the site yourself. if this is a packaged software you might have to see if they have an updated version. if you get stuck let me know, i just figured how to change my site

Actually it should be $_SESSION['name'] = $name which is the equivalent of what session_register('name') does. If you do ="1" then it will be 1 and not what was intended.

Thanks for the quick responses! Yes it is a package script but I guess I can go through it and change it. So does each of the following instances need to be changed?

session_start();
session_register("id_session");
session_register("password_session");
session_register("name_session");
session_register("address_session");
session_register("city_session");
session_register("state_session");
session_register("zip_session");
session_register("country_session");
session_register("phone_session");
session_register("email_session");
session_register("paymentoption_session");
session_register("refby_session");
session_register("l1_session");
session_register("l2_session");
session_register("l3_session");
session_register("l4_session");
session_register("l5_session");
session_register("l6_session");
session_register("l7_session");
session_register("l8_session");
session_register("l9_session");
session_register("l10_session");
session_register("total_session");
session_register("unpaid_session");
session_register("paid_session");

So this
session_register("id_session");
should be this:
$_SESSION = $id_session
etc? And would that then affect any of this:

$id_session=$_SESSION[id_session];
$password_session=$_SESSION["password_session"];
$rs=mysql_query("Select * from members where ID='$id_session'");
$arr=mysql_fetch_array($rs);
$pass=$arr[9];
$id=$arr[0];

if ($_SESSION["id_session"]!="$id" || $_SESSION["password_session"]!="$pass")
