$conf['security_ack']

What is security_ack?
What is it for?
Can't find any docu about that.

    No idea, nothing from Zenphoto itself. Where does this appear?

    I have no idea where this would come from. Never seen that and cannpt find a reference to this so far. It is for sure not part of the default Zenphoto config file.
    https://github.com/zenphoto/zenphoto/blob/master/zp-core/zenphoto_cfg.txt

    Try to remove it and see if it returns. The server log perhaps has some access to the config file if it is changed somehow.

  • Comparing my zenphoto_cfg.txt with github then:

    I am missing line 77
    'gallery'=>

    and in line 92 and 93 I have:
    $conf['security_ack'] = 2;
    $conf['FILESYSTEM_CHARSET'] = "UTF-8";

    I see it on our live site as well but none of my other (local) sites. Somehow I don't remember this at all, probably setup adds it on certain occasions.

    Will take a look later.

    Found it finally, it was a bit hidden and my IDE didn't search setup files because I had them protected….

    So it is from a setup specific function named acknowledge(). It sets this if you decided to ignore these issues setup reported:

    • display errors on
    • register globals on

    Both should be off generally.

  • Thanks for investigating!
