How to Enable PHP function for a one account ?

SkyHi @ Thursday, October 21, 2010
IF you disable PHP function in php.ini file and if you want to enable any particular function only one account .Then You can however use suhosin to enable a function for one domain only.

How can you do that ?

After installing suhosin, remove all functions from disable_functions in php.ini and add in php.ini suhosin.executor.func.blacklist = “exec,passthru,shell_exec” and all the functions that you want to disable globally.

After that for each domain in the virtual host section you can add suhosin.executor.func.blacklist again but without the function that you need to enable. And so you will enable that function only for one domain.


<IfModule mod_php4.c>
php_admin_value open_basedir “/usr/lib/php”
<IfModule mod_php5.c>
php_admin_value open_basedir “/usr/lib/php”
php_admin_value suhosin.executor.func.blacklist = “passthru,shell_exec”

In this example exec has been enabled for the VirtualHost. This way it will be better as you do not neet to modify all the virtual hosts only the ones that you need to enable one or more functions.

This wont work if you have suphp as you cant use php_admin_value

is there a solution to that?
