    I am confuse about PHP safe mode. Should I need to turn it on or off? It is currently Off in my php.ini file. Do you recommend it to turn On?

    It mostly depends of the type of hosting environment you are serving.

    It should be set to ON if you are serving shared hosting accounts, resellers.
    The main issue is that a good amount of *old* PHP applications require safe_mode to be set to Off.
    If you dont experience any customer complain while having safe_mode set to ON I would suggest to keep it that way.

    Fortunately safe_mode will be gone on PHP6 so you wouldn't have to worry about it anymore.

    yes..it is set to Off in our server so that old PHP applications can run. Also, do you know when php version 6 will be released?
