My first guess is it's a register_globals problem. register_globals is
turned off by default in 4.2.1. CGI vs Apache module shouldn't make a
difference in this case (I'm assuming you are only using the basic
variables, such as the post,get,server variables).
As a quick fix, goto your php.ini and find the register_globals
directive, changing it to 'On'. If this works, let us know; if not,
what specific variables does it report it can't find/are undefined?
