Such error occurs if 'register_globals' is disabled  in /etc/php.ini, but osCommerce application requires PHP 'register_globals' option to be set to 'On'.


Please set 'php_admin_flag register_globals=On' in 'vhost.conf' for the domain osCommerce is installed on.

Or you may enable 'php_admin_flag=On' for whole server in/etc/php.ini, but it is not recommended due to security reasons.

See more inormation about vhost.conf at

Also 'register_long_arrays' option should be switched on to avoid the warning messages like "failed to open stream: No such file or directory".
