What does PHP 'safe mode' mean? Why do you use safe mode?

When possible, we use PHP in safe mode to provide higher security for our shared hosting accounts.

With safe mode off, for example, PHP allows a script to execute code owned by a user other than the script's own user. In essence, it means that we have to spend more time monitoring the shared servers.

Some documentation on PHP safe mode can be found in the PHP online manual. More details on the reasons to use PHP safe mode can be found at that location.
