Strange php message when accessing a site

  1. I have been looking on a site today to buy a present for someone

    I went into the site twice this morning without any problems

    Now when I try it I get the message : FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable it!

    I don't know what this means

    The website is http://www.threadsgifts.co.uk

    It seems like a legitimate site, I accessed it through google

    PHP runs server-side and any PHP errors you get are a problem in the server. Looks like someone broke the server and no one cares enough to fix it.

    Nodsu has nailed the location of the error ---> it's on the website server.

    PHP cgi code can be implemented to require or ignore global variables.
    Someone changed a cgi and didn't pay attention to the requirements.

    contact the web admin with the URL you were accessing when you hit SUBMIT.
