I know this issue has been posted, but something is strange here. I have 2 files: index.php Code: <? include('include.php'); ?> include.php Code: phpinfo(); I get ... Code: Warning: include() [function.include]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File() is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/clients/client1/web1/web:/var/www/clients/client1/web1/tmp:/var/www/sitename.com/web:/usr/share/php5:/tmp:/usr/share/phpmyadmin) in /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/index.php on line 3 Fatal error: Can't load include.php, open_basedir restriction. in /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/index.php on line 3 The included file is clearly within the allowed paths ... so what's wrong? Weird! This is a fresh install of ispconfig 3 on a Fedora 12 machine.
