mkdir with safe_mode per directory

My clients ISP will only let me disable safe mode on directory level. I have to copy a single line php.ini file with ‘safe_mode = off’ in every single directory to diable safe mode. We all know, safe mode must be disabled to get CS-Cart working.

When I run the 2.0.4 installation wizard I got stuck when copying the skin files. The scripts try to copy files and directories from the skins repositry to the /skins directory (which is 0777 chmod’ed by the way). Files are copied ok but the mkdir command doesn’t work.

Is it possible for me to finnish the installation without mkdir and copying over php.ini files by hand?

I guess I first install it on my home server and transfer the whole lot to the live one. It’s way saver anyway.
