PhP install Error


I contacted my host support and had safe_mode disabled yet I still receive this error below. Any ideas on what I do now... Tried clearing cache to see if that was the issue.

XenForo 1.0.4 - Errors

The following errors occurred while verifying that your server can run XenForo:

  • PHP must not be running in safe_mode. Please ask your host to disable the PHP safe_mode setting.
Please correct these errors and try again.

Safe mode must still be enabled. You should contact your host about that.

You can also try disabling it yourself. Try adding this line to your library/config.php file:

ini_set('safe_mode', false);
Or add this to a .htaccess file on your server (only works on Apache servers):

php_value safe_mode 0


Tried but no luck. Just contacted host again but pretty sure they disabled it so kind of at a loss now...

Disregard. Must have been a delay but is working now. Thanks.
