File(/var/www/clients/client0/web1/wp-config.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/clients/client0/web1/web:/var/www/clients/client0/web1/tmp:/var/www/zeropuntozero.it/web:/srv/www/zeropuntozero.it/web:/usr/share/php5:/tmp:/usr/share/phpmyadmin) in /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web/wp-load.php on line 32

    You copied the wordpress installation into the wrong directory. You have to copy it into the "web" directory of the webspace.

    Witb FTP you are in the directory which is below the web directory. Read the error message again, your config.inc.php file is in /var/www/clients/client0/web1/wp-config.php but it has to be in /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web/wp-config.php. With FTP you have access to several private directoreis like the logs directory, the users directory, the cgi-bin directrory and also the web directory which contains the website.

    I checked again and the route is from my own web filezilla, also attached a screenshot of the directory, something wrong in configuration?

    Do you have a file named wp-config.php inside the web directory? if not, it might be that you did not install wordpress yet. In that case, please take a look at the wordpress installation instructions as you have to create the wp-config.php file when you want to install wordpress.

    the error message still comes out before installing wordpress, wp-config.php file usually is created automatically by the installation of wordpress. I tried to go ahead with the installation, but got to the end can not create the file mentioned earlier

    As described in the wordpress installation guide, you have to rename the wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php and edit the database credentials inside:

    Additionally, you might have selected a wrong PHP mode. To enable a cms system to write to the web folders, you have to use suphp or fcgi-php + suecxec or cgi-php + suexec.
