PHP Safe mode questions
We are looking at having a new shopping cart system installed for our site www.gagsplus.com and they are saying that safe mode must be turned off in order to install this cart:
Here is their answer from their FAQ:
Is it possible to run THIS Cart with "safe_mode" PHP configuration variable turned on?
The "safe_mode" PHP switch disables several important PHP commands, including input/output functions and file upload support. This makes it virtually impossible to run a complex e-commerce software like THIS Cart. Our shopping cart software needs input/output functions in order to read the template files, needs file upload functions in order to handle product image uploads. By default, "safe_mode" is turned off on all PHP installations. THIS Cart is compatible with all default PHP configurations and most of non-default PHP configurations
Does this seem like this would cause any problems at all? We do have other sites on the server including another important site that was designed in PHP/MYSQL could you see any problems with this.
