    Hi all,

    I am having to rebuild my server manually and I came across an issue. all my Code Igniter sites are receiving an open_basedir error. The sites have the application and system directories set as siblings under the parent web? directory. i.e.:


    I am receiving the following error: Message: is_file(): open_basedir restriction in effect.
    File(application/modules/index.html/config/routes.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/clients/client1/web1/web:/var/www/clients/client1/web1/tmp:/var/www/[CUT-SITENAME]/web:/srv/www/[CUT-SITENAME]/web:/usr/share/php5:/tmp:/usr/share/phpmyadmin:/etc/phpmyadmin:/var/lib/phpmyadmin:/usr/share/php)

    Filename: MX/Modules.php

    Line Number: 369

    I have the following line in the PHP open_basedir option: /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web:/var/www/clients/client1/web1/tmp:/var/www/[CUT-SITENAME]/web:/srv/www/[CUT - SITENAME]/web:/usr/share/php5:/tmp:/usr/share/phpmyadmin:/etc/phpmyadmin:/var/lib/phpmyadmin:/usr/share/php

    So how do I need to change this to make things work correctly?

    Thanks for te help.

    Add the path:


    separated by : at the end of the open basedir paths on the options tab of the website settings. Then wait a minute until the cahnges are written to disk.

    I tried that and it still gives me the same error. I also tried switch php types and adding the apache directory commands to the apache config setcion under Web Domains->Options:

    <Directory /var/www/[CUT - SITENAME]/web>
    php_admin_flag engine on
    php_admin_value open_basedir none

    Still no luck....

    Where exactly did you change that? You have top changie it under Sites > website > options and not under System > Server config.

    This will not work this way. If you wnat to switch the php type, then do that in the website settings.
