    I cannot find the place (i.e. file/physical location, not the control panel setting) ISPConfig is specifying the open_basedir, nor can I do anything to change the open_basedir value in phpinfo()

    I've tried putting "php_admin_value open_basedir none" in my vhosts (sites-available and sites-enabled), I've tried changing it in the ISPConfig panel and it does not update the phpinfo() output, I've tried just about everything I can think of and none of it works after restarting apache.

    No matter what I do, open_basedir is still /var/www/clients/client1/web14/web:/var/www/clients/client1/web14/tmp:/var/www/

    How can I completely remove the open_basedir for one or all of my websites? This isn't a security concern for me, I just want it gone for a few things like CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION and some other functions disabled with open_basedir.

    edit: This is a fresh debian 6 install btw - ISPConfig v3.0.4.5 and everything else is up to date.

    I'm assuming this has something to do with /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/php-cgi-starter.master, but I'm not sure how to change this file or the files created based on this file.

    Undo that.

    That depends on the php method, but it does not matter for disabling open_basedir as you can do that in ispconfig. Login to ispconfig, go to sites > website and there on the options tab. You find a field labeled php open basedir there, replavce the content of that field with the word "none" and click on save. After about a minute, open_basedir is disabled.

    I described this above. By putting "none" in the open basedir field inside the ispconfig interface, this file gets changed automatically and open_basefir gets disabled. Dont change the start file or a apache vhost file manually as your manual changes will get removed automatically anyway.

    Thanks till, you're exactly right, I hadn't really considered the website's settings I was only in the server config. I'm not sure if I edited this after you posted but yeah your first post did the trick.

    Regarding setting open_basedir to none in ISPConfig, is it safe to do that for one site? I have a mobile server monitoring app that requires it.

    I guess that should be ok.
