In shared hosting should Safe_Mode be On or Off and with it on should it mess with any thing? The term Safe_Mode sounds as if it would keep the server safer but does having this on mess with sites code? Will it make there sites stop moving. From what i read with Safe_Mode Off users can read the password file on linux systems so i would think it should be On..
Enableing safe_mode will do nothing but break lots of scripts and cause headaches to your customers. It might be a nice feature for a free host or a large ISP, but not a specialized Unix hosting company.
