Site transfer and running Drupal on NearlyFreeSpeech.NET

I just transferred this site ( to www.nearlyfreespeech.NET webhosting!

I ran into a lot of trouble with PHP Safe_mode restrictions. I tried everything I could find on the web to no avail. So I caved in and set the site mode to PHP Flex, which does away with Safe_mode, and everything is fine now. It sounds like the site is less secure, but I don't know what else to do. And I found in the official PHP docs, Safe_mode has been depreciated and should not be relied on anymore. So maybe it doesn't really matter.


Why did you move?

I was using Dreamhost, which is a fine host, but they're pretty expensive for the meager amount of traffic that my site receives.
