i tryed to push the button 'mitglied hinzufuegen' (probably 'attach member') within a group in security center.
The new window opens and gives following error:

ERROR:Error 2: exec() has been disabled for security reasons At l288 in /www/htdocs/w0090bfc/sstr1/sapphire/security/Geoip.php exec(geoiplookup 'xx.xx.xx.xx',,) line 288 of Geoip.php

In my environment there are no 'exec' rights for php.
i'd a look at the code of Geoip.php and of course could 'hack out' the execution of the command.

my question are:
* are there more things like these which would prevent silverstripe to run in such an environment? As far as i can see, it's the first point.
* Is there a easyer way to 'disable' geoip lookup, fe. set some variable?

would be happy for any hints ;-)
