Internal RFE bug #131500 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2004-10-01 09:55:26 EDT
Will it be sufficient to you to build this extension only into
/usr/bin/php or do you want it enabled from the Apache module too?
Comment 3 Anchor Systems Managed Hosting 2004-10-04 23:09:43 EDT
Well, _I_ personally use PHP as a CGI on our shared server, so that
would be fine for me.

Does it make any difference restricting this given that a user can
run system? Or are you concerned with accidental problems if Apache
is switched to a threaded worker?

Maybe have the configuration add the functions to the disable_functions
