Re: Can't install metamod - openbase_dir error

Hi Chris,

If this error came from the standard Joomla installer when attempting to install MetaMod, then this is not a specific MetaMod problem and will occur when you try to install any module.

It looks like your hoster is setting some security with the "open_basedir" directive in PHP. This is a real pain, and it's hard to see why it would be restricting PHP access to files/folders inside your site.

Is that path definitely inside your site? (i.e. you're not trying to write into a file structure that's outside of your normal public_html structure, are you?)
Can you install anything else?

Ask your hosting provider about the problem, and see why PHP can't write inside your file structure due to open_basedir restrictions.

Cheers,
Stephen
