preferable if only to get new users trained in a better standard. I run firebird
database servers myself.
The school I work with wants to set up PHP and MySQL hosting for about 10,000
Apache can be configured to provide individual logins, and it's ring fencing
their data areas that is the important bit, but you will need a lot of storage
space for 10000 users.
I see that in 5.4, PHP safe-mode is being removed. How is it supposed to be
done if not safe-mode?
It was the wrong solution to the problem.
But as with much that is happening on PHP today, killing things off is being
actioned without any real documented support as to how to replace it. Not their
problem is the usual response when we ask how something should be done like this :(
Are all the hosting providers using suExec and running PHP as CGI or FastCGI?
If I'm trying to do this the right way, what way is that? Anyone got link or
pointers on what I need to learn?
Another one is suphp but that seems to have stalled?
Having been scuppered recently because SUSE seems to have lost it's way as well,
I've just started a setup using Debian so I can get the latest Apache and PHP,
and one link that poped up which looks useful is
. I have always used the apache php module, so was looking to give CGI a try as
a comparison, but I don't have any need for the cross user security myself. My
users just access their material at the PHP level, securely stored in their own
