    Problem installing Joomla 1.5 extension

    I went to install a Joomla 1.5 extension (Jumi) on a site and got
    Code:
    JFolder::create: Path not in open_basedir paths
    error msg.

    Came home tried again with another site, same extension, same error msg.

    Tried another extension (joomlapack) that I know works - same error.

    Tried joomlapack on a localhost install - works fine

    Its possible that CLEO have changed some PHP/security settings - could someone try installing a new extension on one of there 1.5 CLEO sites please and let me know what happens please?

    All sites, remote and local are running J1.5.9 AFAIK so I don't think that's the issue but who knows!

    regards

    (Not a CLEO person)

    Do you have access to php.ini?

    I don't think so (they don't give us sharp knives to play with up here!)

    Take a look at your global configuration and check the log and tmp folder paths.

    from the link u posted
    Check:

    1. Click on the Menu Help->System Info
    2. Click on the second tab, named PHP Settings
    3. Check the line with the Setting "Open Basedir" (usually the second line from top)
    I get this

    Code:
    /u01/inet/htdocs/euxton/:/g01/inet/htdocs/testsite/error_pages/:/g01/inet/htdocs/testsite/cmsCentral/:/tmp/
    Which doesn't look a briliiant valid path to me but maybe it parses to something OK
    [EDIT]
    (I think maybe the : are separators for multiple paths - if so then its the /u01/inet/htdocs/euxton/ parameter that looks interesting because my joomla tmp path = /g01/inet/users/e9043/docs/tmp' )
    [/EDIT]
    Could someone on a Non CLEO, real-world ISP (not your own local server) post what their site gives for the two values?

    @sysman
    Nothings changed on my existing sites that have been working fine for months and I've tried 2 of them

    I know cause doesn't always follow effect but the CLEO servers were down on Sunday (What for I have no idea) and now things don't work anymore

    Talked to ICT Centre - they are not aware of anyhting that happened Sunday to affect things but said that there was a change to open_basedir setting about 2 months ago.

    I can't say for definite that I've tried to install an extension in last couple of months as I just use Joomlapack to re-install my standard customised setup and I can't remember trying to change this (on live sites - I normally change on localhost and package up from there)

    I'm sending them my error and config settings but I'd still appreciate if someone else could give it a go

    (And still very interested to see what other people on real world 1.5 sites have in their open_basedir path compared to the tmp/log file paths.)



    regards

    I see that you use Joomlapack. The correct tmp / log paths do not get updated during the restore process IIRC

    Thats right but I first noticed the fault on a vanilla pucker J1.5.9 install

    (I was trying to set up a sub site just for PTFA to edit so wanted a minimal install with just a few extensions)

    I manually alter the paths if I use JoomlaPack to install my normal package
