PHP Safety Without SAFEMode

This goes in your php.ini files: disable_functions = passthru,shell_exec,system,proc_open,proc_close,popen

pico -w /etc/php.ini
pico -w /usr/lib/php.ini
pico -w /usr/local/lib/php.ini
pico -w /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/etc/php.ini
pico -w /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/lib/php.ini
pico -w /usr/local/Zend/etc/php.ini
Search for line: 'disable_functions'
alter for: disable_functions = passthru,shell_exec,system,proc_open,proc_close,popen

Then to wirte protect them:

chattr +i /etc/php.ini
chattr +i /usr/lib/php.ini
chattr +i /usr/local/lib/php.ini
chattr +i /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/etc/php.ini
chattr +i /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/lib/php.ini
chattr +i /usr/local/Zend/etc/php.ini

This will be pretty safe without needing safe mode
