As per a few other posts I found, I’ve got the System Check message, in Other functions
You need to enable this built-in function.
But none of the other forum posts have any information on what shell_exec is or how to enable it on any platform.
I’m using a Hostinger server with the following:
- PHP Version - 7.0
- Apache Version - Apache/2.4
- MariaDB Version - 10.2
I’m guessing, from this post on Stack Overflow https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24999673/how-to-enable-shell-exec-and-exec-on-php that I need root access to enable shell_exec and as I don’t have that, I’m stuck?
If you are not the root on the machine, and
exec()function is disabled, then you can’t enable it by yourself.
This directive allows you to disable certain functions for security reasons. It takes on a comma-delimited list of function names. disable_functions is not affected by Safe Mode.
Only internal functions can be disabled using this directive. User-defined functions are unaffected
This directive must be set in php.ini For example, you cannot set this in httpd.conf.
