I have a problem when I come to the point in the install process where I’m supposed to run the install.php. When I try to run the file in the browser, the following error message is coming up:
Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(../wp-config.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (.:/tmp/:/home/zendurl/public_html/thefirewall/) in /home/zendurl/public_html/stolen/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php on line 3
There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.
I’ve seen similar postings in the forum, but none with an error message that is reminiscent of the first lines in mine, that is the cryptic writings about what seems to be some kind of directory problem.
I can’t see that I have done anything wrong in the configuration of the config-file, and I have tried to uppload the WP-files, both in the main directory and in a wordpress-map.
If anyone have a splendid solution, feel free to inform me (in a simple way).
