Maybe it's time to program a new gallery
script version that will run under
safe_mode ON, because that a server with
a safe_mode OFF will be a big secure
So sorry that your great gallery have
Requirements needs like
safe_mode OFF parameter
Well, safe mode is not the answer to the security problems, proper server administration is. This is also why safe_mode will be remobed from PHP6 because of the misconseptions in it's usage. See FAQ: Does G2 work with Safe Mode PHP? for a link to a forum thread expaining the Gallery position of Safe_mode.
A lot of servers still use PHP 4.X.
Do you use a webhotel with other user, it's more easy to get
access to others users Password and Usernames, inserted into scripts. That's way my argument - that it's a big secure problem to set the safe_mode OFF.
It's also should be easy to a good programmer to make scripts that
will run fine with the safe mode set to ON - maybe it will take
a little bit more time but it's possible .-)
Well, safe_mode really doesn't solve that problem. PHPSuExec does, or similar setups, which is what I was referring to in my above post.
Have already tried that, but thanks any way!
Just delete my install files, and go back to Coppermine
that I know runs with safe mode ON .-)
But would really like to se Gallery 2 - in action
on my own server and design

MG2, coppermine, and a few others. there are plenty of alternatives and some of them work with php safe_mode.
but note that even the creators of PHP (the language that all these alternatives and G2 are based on) admit that safe_mode is crap and that it needs to go away...and it will. safe_mode is planned to be removed in the next major release of php (php 6).
all discussed in our php safe_mode thread.
