Thanks for posting this link. I don't agree with your description PHP, but
this got me looking through the security sections of PHP documentation,
and I'm working on hardening our applications. 

In the "securityfocus.com" article they state that the "safe_mode" option
in php.ini is not well described in the documentation. That's true of the
manual at www.php.net, but there is a more full descritpion at:


These discussions help remind one that security is always a pain, but
constant thought is necessary for any applications written for publically
available machines.
