"Warning: exec() has been disabled" message

Can anyone tell me why these two errors have appeared in the Configuration Manager, and what I need to do to fix them? Thanks - in advance!


Warning: exec() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/*****/public_html/administrator/components/com_comprofiler/imgToolbox.class.php on line 625

I have just noticed I am having this exact same issues on all my Community Builder sites' configuration manager.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

In what way is this affecting CB?

Nothing serious to bother about: it's the autodetection of ImageMagic and NetPBM image processing programs which, if installed, can be used for the avatars resizing.

But as your ISP has disabled the ability to execute a program from PHP, the test fails (and displays a warning message for each of these two).

This thread shows a possible fix to this small problem (which is only esthetics in the backend):

Beat, I've read this (the referenced post) at least 5 times and I STILL cannot fathom what needs to be changed and where. (And according to the reply = which is from 8/10 and still unanswered, I'm not the only one..;)

Do you think you could post simple instructions like all of your fixes; i.e. "at line # in /administrator/components/com_comprofiler/imgToolbox.class.php add/change/edit..etc" and make THAT the sticky?

Thanks...:cheer:

CB 1.0.1 fixes that problem. Please Update to 1.0.1 (highly recommended).

Umm, I am running CB 1.0.1 stable. The error appears since I modified my php.ini according to the new guidelines posted at the Joomla Forums. They suggested the following:
[code:1]allow_url_fopen = OFF
register_globals = OFF
disable_functions = show_source, system, shell_exec, passthru, exec, phpinfo, popen, proc_open[/code:1]
Since exec() calls are turned off the tests no longer work, as expected, but I do not understand the hack the way it is presented in the thread.

Unless you're saying that I am going to far by blocking these calls.
