    Hello,
    actually safe mod is enabled by default.
    But some users need safe_mod disabled, that is not possible with fastcgi for each users,?!
    In php 5.3 is safe_mod deprecated, but configurable.
    My question is, can safe mod a security problem if it's disabled on php 5.3?

    Thank you

    I haven't been using the safe_mod function since years ago , If your kernel is patched and users are in jail and also PHP/Apache is hardened there wouldn't be any security issue because safe_mod is disabled on your PHP .

    Hello :)

    This feature is deprecated as of PHP 5.3.0 and removed as of PHP 5.4.0. You should use alternative methods for increased security instead of using this feature.

    Thank you.
