How to enable some PHP functions?

For security purposes, we have disabled several PHP functions that are deemed dangerous. We do not recommend any customers to use them, unless you really need them. The steps to enable them are:

1) Create an empty php.ini file in your computer
2) Copy and paste the following line in the file

disable_functions = system,exec,passthru,shell_exec,proc_open,proc_get_status,proc_terminate,proc_close,virtual,popen,show_source,curl_multi_exec

3) Remove the function you want to enable from the line
4) Upload it to the directory your script is installed

 

NOTE:
Enabling any of these functions are extremely dangerous and open up your account to hackers. Do it at your own risk.
Several copies of the php.ini is needed if you need the function to work in multiple directories.
