it worked. I commented out all but the first line. then it worked. Here is the file.
#php_flag file_uploads on
#php_flag session.use_cookies on
#php_flag register_globals off
#php_flag session.use_trans_sid off
#php_value include_path "."
#php_value error_reporting 2047
#php_flag display_errors off
Wil it hurt not to have these active? I had this script running on another LAMP and I did not have to comment out the lnes. What causes this to hapen? Also, when I uploaded the files to the server I used winSCP3 and had to use root access to upload them. now the filders belong to root. will this be ok? I tryed to use the user name and password from when I made the website in ingconfig but it would not log on under that program. I am very new to most of this stuff. thanks for the help. Any exsplaing on how and why's would be greatly helpful.
