Hey guys! I have debian lenny (no control panel) running with the latest PHP5 that's available for it. I've also disabled some common PHP functions that are a risk like exec, system, passthru... in php.ini But now I need for one domain name to be able to run some external software with passthru. Now, as far as I know lenny PHP5 is already compiled with suhosin-patch. On the suhosin website it says that with suhosin-patch only logging functions are supported. :S I've tried by adding this to htaccess: php_flag suhosin.executor.func.whitelist "passthru" And of course the error is that passthru has been disabled for security reasons.. So, first, do i need to install suhosin? Code: aptitude install suhosin Or am I missing something and I can do this with suhosin-patch? Little pointers needed if you guys are so kind..
