Environment variables cannot be accessed using $VAR_NAME in this version. getenv("VAR_NAME") & $_SERVER["VAR_NAME"] are ok.


Notice: Undefined variable: HTTP_USER_AGENT in D:\index.php on line 19.

phpinfo() works ok & shows them. Re-installed 4.0.6 and back to normal. Using IIS 5.

In PHP 4.2.0, the 'register_globals' setting default changed to
be off. See for more info.
We are sorry about the inconvenience, but this change was a necessary
part of our efforts to make PHP scripting more secure and portable.
