I set up a wordpress 2.3.3 installation in a plesk based host.
The issue regarding the open_basedir restriction is solved through the typical user vhost.conf file in plesk and the site is showing correctly in normal browser:
<Directory /var/www/vhosts/mysite.com/httpdocs> <IfModule mod_php5.c> php_admin_value open_basedir none </IfModule> </Directory>
The problem now is that although the site is showing well in normal browser the search robots are getting 404 errors for all pages. I checked that with lynx and in fact it gets 404 header delay before shwoing the page.
And if I take out the above
open_basedir directive in vhost.com, the pages don't show in normal browser (expected) but the lynx doesn't return 404 header anymore.
This situation is obviously affecting my site index in google.
Has anyone experienced this sort of problem with an installation of wordpress in plesk or can anyone point me some directions to the solution?
