    Default Disabling some php commands

    Hi,
    I have Formmail 8.36 and the encoder running fine on my server, hosted at GoDaddy.
    In the GoDaddy php.info, GoDaddy suggests disabling some php commands to make my site more secure.
    Can you tell me whether disabling these commands will break Formmail or the Encoder?

    Thanks,
    Jim Allen

    ; phpinfo, exec, system, dl, fsockopen, set_time_limit,
    ; popen, proc_open, proc_nice,shell_exec,show_source,symlink"

    Default Re: Disabling some php commands

    Hi,

    If you're using FILTERS for FormMailEncoder, then you need "popen" function.

    If you're using SOCKET_FILTERS (most people don't), then you need "fsockopen".

    However, if you disable any functions the only way to be sure is to test afterwards. For example, disabling "exec" may also disable "popen" (depending on the version of PHP in use).
