$_GET not available problem?

I have the following code:


print "1. " . $_GET['c'] . "-2. " . $_GET['s'];


The file is called test_globals.php.
On most servers I can type:


and the output will be similar to:

1. yes-2. no

However, on one server, I get the following result:

1. -2.

My question is, why doesn't $_GET return the values of "yes" and "no" ?
On this server (which is running Apache 2.0 and PHP 4.2.2), register_globals is set to 'on' and safe-mode is set to 'off'. I've already tried to change the code to:


print "1. " . $c . "-2. " . $s;


and still get the result:

1. -2.

Are there any other directives that must be set in a certain way to enable
$_GET ?

Thanks all.

:o Look at the Revision of PHP. ;) $_GET wasn't implemented until version 4.1.0. You may have to revert to using the older function $HTTP_GET_VARS.

Okay, I tried substituting $_GET with $HTTP_GET_VARS but still get the same result of:

1. -2.

I don't know if this matters but the server is a secure server, meaning it's accessed with the protocol prefix of "https" rather than "http":


Maybe I should have mentioned this initially.
The php version is 4.2.2, so $_GET should be available, not to mention $HTTP_GET_VARS.

Thanks though,
