PHP safe mode?
« on: March 05, 2006, 08:53:38 PM »
Hi,
I´m wondering about PHP safe mode. In the instalation manual it says that PHP safe mode should be turned off so I checked with the company where I have my website! And off course, they have safe mode turned on... And turning it off was not an option!
A little bit dissapointed I thought to myself that maybe iI should give it a try anyway. So I installed WB on the server to see what hapened. And it seems to work!? What is the reason for why PHP safe mode has to be turned off?

I would be very greatful for an answer as soon as possible!

By the way, WebsiteBaker seems to be a great CMS!


Best regards, JC

Stefan

Please try to use the search function. Safe mode has been discussed in various threads.

How many pages did you create?
Opensource is my life, but then elsewhere.

I made 5 pages, just as a test to see if it would work. And it actually seems to work fine!

I´ll make a new search on PHP Safe mode to see if I can find anything!

I think it 'll work for you

the safe mode needs to be off so php can create files in your webspace
Your installation does, so no troubles I think.


Try installing a module to see if that goes well too

OK, now I´ve tried to install a new module. And it works!

So, do you think I will have any problems in the future?

All seem to work, just be sure to make regurly backups, as you would if safemode was disabled ;)

I found a little problem that I´m not shure about if it is related to the Safe mode. It is when you want to be reminded about your login, then it says "Unable to email password, please contact system administrator"
I also had some problems with the gallery module(Gallery v1.7). when i try to upload images it doesn´t really work. In the admin area I can see that there should be two objects but it doesn´t save the text I just entered nor the image that I uploaded!?

Does this have anything to do with the safe mode?
