Gentlemen, please. Let's keep this civil.

The simplest solution to the problem presented would be to change the wiki to encourage users to set their upload directory to a location not served by nginx (and thus not executable by PHP). This is *entirely* a PHP configuration issue.

There are still dangers depending on what the application does with the uploaded files, but those exist no matter what. Making the change to the documentation to encourage this best practice should suffice for us.
