According to the deveoplers of PHP, PHP has become more conformed to CGI specifications. As such, you will need to make the following changes in order for global variables to be filled in. Included below is a list of environment variables that have changed in this latest version of PHP. As an example, if you have referenced the PATH_TRANSLATED variable in your scripts, you would need to change that to ORIG_PATH_TRANSLATED.

As a side note, this release of PHP will also ensure that image support is enabled. The GD libraries are supported in this release and we did confirm that both JPEG and PNG image support is included in this release.
