    What safety problems?

    Since cache directory is world-writable and executable… perhaps it is a good idea to hide it by using one another name… is it?

    Thank u in advance

    So is your uploads directory. The cache directory has to be in the web path somewhere for the mod_rewrite rules to work. PHP mode would work as it can include files from anywhere but you’re still left with world writeable directories. If a PHP file is exploited the bad guys are in and will find it anyway.

    Ok, so it’s not so clear to me.

    I’m using PHP caching mode.
    At this time, caching is working fine, but I have some problems.

    1) Due to PHP Safe Mode enable probably, I cannot write the cache even if directory cache has 777 permissions!

    2) How can I be safe from malicious attacks?

    How can solve them?

    Thank you in advance,

    1. Don’t bother with PHP safe mode, it’s not really any safer.
    2. Update your plugins and WordPress when updates come out. Check the forums of plugins you use for complaints.
