    general requirements for Silverstrip - PHP POSIX Link to this post

    Hi Installers...

    PHP manual for POSIX reads:
    Warning - Sensitive data can be retrieved with the POSIX functions, e.g. posix_getpwnam() and friends. None of the POSIX function perform any kind of access checking when safe mode is enabled. It's therefore strongly advised to disable the POSIX extension at all (use --disable-posix in your configure line) if you're operating in such an environment.

    You need POSIX for installing Silverstripe as I understand it... So, this maybe something to check as a requirement for your webhost ( I found that www.godaddy.com did not offer this).

    Can anyone confirm this theory?

    Thank you

    Nicolaas

    POSIX is only used by the installer to check if the web server has write permissions where needed, it's not actually used by SilverStripe itself. There is a a ticket on this, I'll clear this up before SS 2.1.0!

    So you reckon I could probably just take out those lines? or replace it with something similar???
