Fixing open_basedir in Joomla

Many security tools and blogs suggest setting the open_basedir in the php.ini file.  The open_basedir directive "Limits the files that can be accessed by PHP to the specified directory-tree, including the file itself. ... When the file is outside the specified directory-tree, PHP will refuse to access it." *

 

However, it can often trigger the error:

JFolder::create: Path not in open_basedir paths

 

In order to solve this, you have three options:

Fixing Magic Quotes for Joomla 3.x

Fixing Magic Quotes for Joomla 3.x

If you have ever installed a new Joomla 3.x website or moved a Joomla site from one server to another, you may have gotten the error for needing to disable Magic Quotes.  This can seem easier said than done depending on your hosting company.  

We compiled a quick guide for how to figure out whether it's enabled, how to change it, and how to troubleshoot it when that STILL doesn't work.

As a disclaimer, messing with server settings can seriously mess up your website.  If you have that feeling like "hmm, should I be doing this??" then you might want to hire a professional to fix it for you.  If you feel like you just need to know where to go, then read on!

 

 

What is Magic Quotes?

At its most basic level, it is the setting within PHP that allows quotation marks to be allowed or stripped out of a string.

Fix Out of Date PHP

Fix Out of Date PHP

More and more extensions are requiring PHP 5.3.  If you are getting warnings, there are two main ways of switching your website over to PHP 5.3

Using .htaccess

Towards the top of your .htaccess, add:

# Use PHP 5.3AddType application/x-httpd-php53.php

 

Change in Control Panel of Hosting

Look for "CGI and Scripted Language Support"

Then go to "PHP Scripting"

Set "Select Default PHP Version" to PHP 5.3
