open_basedir restriction on installation (2 posts)

    Hello,

    Feeling like read 10000 Topics about this topic but found no working solution:

    I have 2 Virtual Servers - one of them is new.

    I already installed a couple of WP Blogs on my old Server without any problem or error during the installation.

    Now when I want to start a WP Installation on my new Server (Ubuntu, Plesk) I just get an error on the first page:

    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/www/vhosts/domain.de/wp-config.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/domain.de/httpdocs:/tmp) in /var/www/vhosts/domain.de/httpdocs/wp-load.php on line 32

    This only happens when I want to install the WP in the root folder - no problems in Subfolders!

    Why does wp trys to put the "wp-config.php" in the non allowed folder instead of the "/httpdocs" folder ?!

    The open_basedir path is the same as on the old server.

    Any suggestions?
