No Images Coming Up

  • Hi There,

    I am starting to build myself a new site. I have been using WordPress for a few years now. I have installed my theme and uploaded a picture but it is not appearing and shows a dead link.

    I have confirmed that the image is uploaded as I can type in the directory and it comes up.

    The site is: http://neighboursnetwork.host56.com/

    Any help would be amazing!

    many thanks,

    Alfie Green

    I see this error when I try to open the image:

    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/local/apache/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/6126_marquee_512x288.jpg) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/:/usr/lib/php:/tmp) in /home/a5087719/public_html/wp-content/themes/LondonLive/thumb.php on line 792

    The “open_basedir” restriction is a setting at the server configuration end so would need fix it. You can send them a copy of the error along with a link to your site.

    Actually on looking at it more closely it seems like are somehow calling a file outside your own site’s directory on the server:


    I don’t see the name of your home directory – i.e. /home/a5087719/ – in that path.

    I’m not sure if that’s a problem at your host’s end or in your WP configuration.

    In your WP admin area, in Settings > Media – what do you have in the media uploads field?

    the uploads folder is: wp-content/uploads

    Its really strange, as i use free hosting and all i had to set up was mySQL :/

    I would definitely contact your host about the error, then. Send them a copy of a few of the errors (right-click & open image in a new tab to see them all) and a link to the site.

    the problem is a am on a free hosting system and when i have had errors before they baiscally tell me to upgrade! ahah! they wont help me at all…. Is there any other work around?
