Our main server is php safe-mode (for noobs: that means php can't create new directories, which causes hassles for user albums, etc).

We were able to 100% work around this by creating a tiny perl cgi script (that goes in cgi-bin) to do the dirty work. We now have coppermine able to create new user directories even though it is in safe mode.

My question: is this something only useful for us, or would it possibly help other users?

Those of you who have a safe_mode host: are you allowed to create cgi scripts? If so, our solution might be worth integrating into coppermine.

Your thoughts and ideas appreciated!

Why don't you save your perl file as a text file and attach it to your post?

I can do that, but there's more to it than a cgi script... also a few core *.php file edits ... I can submit as a hack but prefer to improve the core when possible ;)

Please post the hack, a dev will look into it and see if it makes sense to add it to the core of a future release.
