    So, I'm getting the following odd error_log entries:

    [19-May-2014 16:02:13 UTC] PHP Warning: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/home/[username]/public_html/..) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/[username]/public_html:/home/[username]/tmp:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/lib/php:/tmp) in /home/[username]/public_html/wp-content/plugins/better-wp-security/modules/free/file-change/class-itsec-file-change-admin.php on line 668

    Offending lines are similar:

    if ( file_exists( $directory . $file ) && $file != '.' && $file != '..' && ! is_dir( $directory . $file ) ) {

    The only difference in the line is the not before is_dir( $directory . $file ). Any ideas as to what could be going on here?

    It looks like your host as restrictions on running the file functions in php. You will need to contact your host to get the restriction on the function removed. For more information on the error please visit:
