Tutorial :How to turn off safe_mode in php on Debian?



Question:

I know, it may sound ridiculous, but I can't turn off safe_mode. I'm using wkhtmltopdf (which is best html->pdf converter I've used, and yes, I tried html2ps, fpdf and lots of others). And it needs to be executed with exec() function. I've done

  • find / | grep php.ini,

found all of php.ini's and changed safe_mode to Off. Then added

  • php_flag safe_mode Off

to .htaccess and

  • php_admin_flag safe_mode Off

to httpd.conf. And still I'm getting the following errors:

  • Warning (2): shell_exec() [function.shell-exec]: Cannot execute using backquotes in Safe Mode [APP/vendors/wkhtml/wkpdf.php, line 79]

Update: Ok, I've found an answer. Since I had virtualhosts, each virtualhost had it's own httpd.conf inside of it's own directory, and it had "safe_mode off" inside of it.

Sorry for disturbance.


Solution:2

You have probably forgot to restart your httpd.

Also, this question belongs on ServerFault.


Solution:3

maybe use ini_set() to disable safemode right before shell_exec() ? but propably ini_set is disabled in safemode as well...
