A simple PHP script won't work

    I just got a plesk server and now I am having a hell of a time getting variables posted back to the php page once submitted. I can't get the script to read the variable after it has been submitted. Basically the text doesn't get printed to screen. I have no problem with this on ensim, this is so basic that I am lost. Running 4.3.10 php and httpd-2.0.46-44.ent

    if ($btnSubmit != "") {
         echo "You have pressed the submit button";
    <form method="POST" action="<? print $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'];?>">
    <input type="submit" name="btnSubmit" value="push me">

    Someone helped me at ev1servers forum. The problem was in my php.ini file.

    Need to set it to this.
    register_globals = On
    it was off.

    I'd leave the "register_globals = Off"

    and would change the "if" statement to:

    . . .
    if ($_POST["btnSubmit"] != "") {
    . . .

    It's much more secure.
