Description:
------------
I'm running PHP as a CGI on Apache 2.2 on Windows 2003. 

In the php.ini file_uploads is set to On:
file_uploads = On

In the registry the following values are set:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PHP\Per Directory Values\c\home\htdocs]
"file_uploads"="0" 
or
"file_uploads"="Off"

The test.php file (see Reproduce code) is located in the following folder:
c:\home\htdocs

The ini_get("file_uploads") reports the correct value (0) but file uploads are still working. Also phpinfo() reports the correct local and master values.

The same problem happens file_uploads are set to Off in the php.ini and the file_uploads variable is set to "1" or "On" in the windows registry. In this case uploads won't work.

Mathias Berchtold <mb@smartftp.com>

Reproduce code:
---------------
Use the following code and upload a file and watch the result.

test.php
<html>
	<body>
<?php	
	if(empty($_FILES))
		print("_FILES is empty.<br>"); 
	else
		print_r($_FILES); 
	print("<br>");

	$bResult = ini_get("file_uploads");
	print("ini_get(\"file_uploads\") = ".$bResult);
	print("<br>");
?>
	 <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method=POST>
	 	<input type=file name="file"> 
	 	<input type="submit">
	 	</form>
	 		
<?php
	phpinfo();
?>

	</body>
</html>

Expected result:
----------------
Case A:
With the following pre-conditions:
php.ini
file_uploads = On
and
Windows Registry
file_uploads = "0"

I expect the $_FILES variable to empty.

Case B:
With the following pre-conditions:
php.ini
file_uploads = Off
and
Windows Registry
file_uploads = "1"

I expect the $_FILES variable not to be empty.


Actual result:
--------------
File uploads solely depend on the file_uploads value in php.ini. The windows registry seems to override this setting but in reality it doesn't affect uploads.
