Greetings all,

I'm trying to create a mysql backup script. The dump has been generated, but now I want to be able to save it to a file to FTP it to another server away from my company's primary one. But because we are running in safe mode, file creation is severly restricted. Reviewing things, the only solution I could come to was to create a folder, assign it to the nobody user, and then use that for writing the files to before FTP'ing them.

Will doing so be a possible security risk?
