From the TWiki:Support.PhpFlagEngineOffBreaksRendering it is clear that the pub-htaccess.txt file is not optimal for many users on hosted services since running PHP as CGI seems more common than we anticipated.

It has to be done with care so we do not end up with opening up a new security issue instead.

I will try and read up on the subject and maybe setup a test installation with PHP as CGI.

I am still on to this one. I have a fix - just need to make a VM that runs PHP as CGI to confirm the fix. That is a 4-5 hours job.
