He is probably running a more recent version of Apache than what most hosting 
companies are running, PHP 5 won't be available everywhere until later this 
spring IMHO.

PHP 5 is a little more strict with variables and objects, and you probably 
have a number of unset index or variable errors? Move those variables out 
into a function instead of having them in-line of your actual 

To suppress errors inline, use the @ character:

There are also ways of doing it with the htaccess file, but it is not reliable 
once your site goes on a shared hosting environment. You could wrap your 
whole procedure in a function too:

at the beginning and at the end:

The best way to get rid of these errors is to make your code future compatible 
so those errors don't need to be fixed. You will want to have a look at the 
isset function too:


Example, a form that's may or may not get a POST variable passed to it:

if(isset($_SESSION['myvariable'])) { // etc. }
