PHPs Safe Mode
The PHP Safe Mode is - well I do not like this rough tongue, but yeah it is - a pain in the ass LOL. It is used quite often in shared-hosting environments to "secure" the website environment... let me say: There are better ways to do that!
And no, I am not an Administrator and have to fight with file permissions for hundreds of users, its just what I guess is the best.
If you can not manage to install BIGACE with activated Safe Mode, try the following:
- Create a subdirectory and copy the installation files there with the same user, the scripts UID must be the same as the directory owner!
- Use PHP4 instead of PHP5 (some difference in behaviour were lately posted at the Forum).
- From the pre-installer, you have to install to a subdirectory again. The script fixes the UID problem by creating directory and files again.
