i have to agree.  use a different package that does not open your 
mahcine up to all kinds of nasty attacks and makes you a target of 
anyone who wants to use your server to host nasty sites amongst other

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
