How does PHP's safe mode influence the setting of file and directory permissions?

In particular with safe mode is it still possible to have PmWiki allocate directories if per group sub directories or [[PmWiki/UploadsAdmin#uploaddirectoryconfiguration | uploads by page are used?

If in the above instance PmWiki cannot allocate directories, are there any work arounds available. For example providing PmWiki with a number of preallocated directories that it can rename when required?

PHP Safe Mode is a subject that should be a recipe unto itself. It's a complicated subject! I wrote some documentation about writable files and PHP Safe Mode at a long time ago. I'm not sure if it's still current or if it needs to be updated. -Hagan
