Hi folks, got the followin problem, I have an application using pear / excel spreadsheet to create excel files. Safe mode is on for the web. The first error is that in can not open the pear files because the dir is not in the open_basedir list. If I now add it, that error is gone but because of safe mode we have a uid conflict because the pear stuff is owned by root. Sure switching safe_mode off the whole stuff works. But I'm looking for a solution that I can use pear with any web (if possible without switching to suphp), that means changing the pear files owner to the web one won't help. Any ideas?
