Problem with Open_basedir restriction

The error: 'open_basedir restriction in effect' indicates that the open_basedir setting in the php.ini is turned on which is used to restrict the locations that include files can be placed on the server.

If a file is uploaded to the server outside the locations specified by the open_basedir directive, you will receive that message. More information can be found here:
