You do not have access to your php.ini file, however you are able to temporarily override settings in this file and change certain parameters using the ini_set() function in php, however these changes only last for the duration of the script. After the page is finished executing the settings will revert back to their original settings. What I would recommend that you do is add the following line of code to the top of the page that is giving you the error.
php.ini is a Server-level file that will not be accessible on your account.
And I don't think you can enable register_globals locally using .htaccess, either.
You will need to find another software that does not require register_globals.

There appear to be some modified files to avoid using register_globals:
However, they are community written and you are advised to use them at your own risk.
Also, any software that requires register_globals is not only a huge security risk, but won't work when PHP6 becomes the defacto standard. If I remember correctly, register_globals is being removed completely.
