I am trying to install Drupal 7.19 on Networks Solutions and ran into this error:

Web server Apache/2.2.22 (Unix) FrontPage/
PHP 5.3.8

PHP register globals Enabled ('1')
register_globals is enabled. Drupal requires this configuration directive to be disabled. Your site may not be secure when register_globals is enabled. The PHP manual has instructions for how to change configuration settings.

Any suggestion?

Try this first.
Place below code at top of htaccess file and then try install again.

AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php

Thanks mhebb. I tried adding that line of code into the .htaccess file, but it still gives me the same error message.
I have another Drupal web folder installed successfully using the add-in from Network Solutions. Only the Drupal folder that I uploaded manually is giving me trouble.

This may be a little late, but I was doing some research about hosting a D7 site on Network Solutions (consensus is: Don't, if you can avoid it... but I have a client who wants to...).

There's a decent write-up here:

Essentially, there should be a way for you add a php.ini file for your hosted environment that can disable that setting.

Open the File Manager tool in your Network Solutions Account Manager
Navigate to /cgi-bin
Create an empty file called php.ini
Edit the file, typing register_globals = off into the top line.

Put this in your root folder's .htaccess file at the top and see if it helps.

php_value register_globals off
