    Its not the clearest message in the world i agree... I use PHPexec on a few sites and just ignore it and carry on just fine. The only rule i follow is to never ever use the WYSIWYG editor for anything ever... But i follow that rule anyway in wordpress regardless of using the phpexec plugin or not.

    From the readme.....
    Code:
    With Exec-PHP you can execute PHP code in the excerpt and the content portion of your posts and pages (in the following called articles) as also as in text widgets. To execute code, just type in the PHP code as you usually would, encapsulated in <?php ?> tags.
     Writing code in articles or text widgets may require some further tuning to the blog and user settings. To have the plugin work properly with PHP code in the content of a users article, do as follows:

    at times this warnings do occur due to permission issues as well.

    Try to make sure that all the wordpress folders have 755 permission and files 644 if phpeexc is enabled.

    This is just a standard disclaimer issued by Exec-PHP, you can safely ignore it providing that )(as Rob has pointed out) you do NOT ever edit that page in Visual mode. Doing so will ruin the raw HTML or PHP that you have inserted on the page.

    Pages where you have not used raw HTML or PHP can be safely edited in Visual mode.
