Pre-script errors?

Requirements met
Your server meets all of XenForo's PHP requirements.
However, the following warnings should be noted - you may need to ask your host to address these:
  1. Your server has disabled a core PHP function exec via the disable_functions directive in php.ini. This may cause unexpected problems in XenForo.
  2. Your server has disabled a core PHP function proc_open via the disable_functions directive in php.ini. This may cause unexpected problems in XenForo.
  3. Your server has disabled a core PHP function popen via the disable_functions directive in php.ini. This may cause unexpected problems in XenForo.
I contacted my host, but in the meantime, does the above means I shouldn't buy and install yet?

I would make sure your host will enable those functions first. If you have to move to a new host, you should do that first.

My host says:

I'm afraid these functions are disabled for security reasons and cannot be enabled on a shared server. You'd need a VPS to use these.

But I think some shared hosts have these enabled, reading thru here knownhost and A2host. Hmmmmmm

Change hosts.

There's no reason to have any functions disabled, regardless whether it's a shared server or not.

Hi Brogan, so these functions that are disabled has to be done on the server? They're not individual to the php of the domain?
