Description of problem:
This is a known bug for apache 2.0 and PHP:
It would be nice to have this bug fixed in the next patch cycle for PHP. As I
note a bit further down, there are also some problems with php directives which
do not work from within the apache configration files at php-4.2.2-8.0.5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.change safe_mode to 'On' in /etc/php.ini
2.restart apache any php URL served by your website which comes from a properly moded php

Actual Results:  Warning: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid
is -1 is not allowed to access .....

Expected Results:  a correct php-generated web page

Additional info:

I grabbed a snapshot from today: 
php4-STABLE-latest.tar.bz2 (which is named php4-STABLE-200210300000 in the
tarball) and rebuilt the rpm, taking note of the build bug reported at:

This rebuilt version of php seems to function properly with apache 2, but I need
to do more testing. It also seems to fix some wierdness with php directives in a
virtual host context, as noted at:

For example, the following kind of configuration works with this latest build I
did today, and does _not_ work with the php-4.2.2-8.0.5    rpm in RH 8.0:

    <IfModule sapi_apache2.c>
       php_admin_flag safe_mode  Off
       php_flag register_globals  On
       php_admin_value include_path "/var/www/myinc:."
       php_admin_flag allow_url_fopen  Off
       php_admin_flag file_uploads  On
       php_flag display_errors  On
