DH is also one of the few servers with a PHP5 install.
DH folks actually know security. This is one reason I've been with DH for near 3 years now. They know what they're doing. I like that.
You're in a dilemma. As it was stated in the above and the other thread, you cannot have both. You want virtual(), but it's only works with mod_php (PHP4). You want URL File open, but it's not enabled on any DH PHP install.
You gotta make a choice. Which is more important? virtual() or URL File Open?
