[Xerte] Problem with XOT 1.9

I downloaded the xot 1.9 zipfile this morning and installed to a hosted
web-server using the cpanel interface.
I found I needed to create a php.ini file with register_globals = true
in order to get anywhere with xot. Having made that change, together
with changing auth to use static.php, I'm now able to login and get the
next screen, but I'm unable to create projects.
Attempting to create a project brings up the edit screen with the URL
http://myhost.fqdn/xerte/edit.php?template_id=2 and the error message:
Invalid template_id (could not find in DB)
(template_id increments by one on each attempt to create).
If I display the Workspace properties, under the My Details tab I just
get the fixed display strings but no values:
My name on the system is
My last login was on
My username is
There are some entries in the database with the relevant id:
template_id creator_id template_type_id template_name date_created
date_modified date_accessed number_of_uses access_to_whom
1 NULL 5 MyProject 2013-03-16 2013-03-16 NULL NULL Private
template_id user_id role folder notes
1 NULL creator 0 NULL
It looks odd that creator_id and user_id are NULL, so wondering if it is
a problem with the authentication or logged-in-ID-tracking (would
perhaps tie in with no details being displayed for the workspace
properties). I get the same problem if I use the guest authentication
Logging in to the management.php screen I don't get any functionality
available - the screen appears OK with the standard options but text
area just displays "the feature is for administrators only".
Any suggestions as to how to fix the problem or next steps in further
diagnosing it would be much appreciated.
