I've tried every way of doing it listed on the boards. I have a PSA 7.01 using the vhost_ssl.conf setup and works without a hitch. I copied the settings over, and checked the full paths, but still no go. When I check phpinfo() it's not using my custom settings at all. It's using the default domain.com/httpsdocs:/tmp Here's my error: Warning: Unknown(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/index.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/securedomain.com/httpsdocs:/tmp) in Unknown on line 0 Warning: Unknown(/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/index.php): failed to open stream: Operation not permitted in Unknown on line 0 Warning: (null)(): Failed opening '/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/index.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/psa/apache/share/pear') in Unknown on line 0 Here's my vhost_ssl.conf file: <Directory /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/securedomain.com/httpsdocs:/tmp:/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/:/tmp> php_admin_value open_basedir none </Directory> Been at this all day... any help would be appreciated. And yes I've run all the restart commands etc, even down to restarting psa.
