Support » Fixing WordPress » strange error message on moved installation

  • hi, advanced question here 🙂 I am moving a wordpress installation from one domain to another. I’ve moved over the full database, and the new installation is pretty much happy (all my blog posts are showing up etc).

    the only problem is this message at the very top of the blog page:

    Warning: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/www/vhosts/ is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/ in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 201

    it looks like it’s doing something VERY strange to find the /tmp folder. can someone give me an idea of where I might look to help WP correct this? is there a config setting someplace to specify a temp folder?

    thank you,

  • hmm the issue seems to do with get_option(‘active_plugins’) returning that crazyness as an entry… still tracking it down

    hmm I’m at a loss. the wp_options db table is quite a beast, and I’m not sure what it should be, but I don’t think it’s actually a problem in the database table (since the db is identical on both boxes and everything works perfectly on the old server).

    so, I blame some kind of config issue on the new server. any ideas where I should look?

    turns out my WP installation was hacked– did another google search and this time I found something.

    yay, google for helping me

    boo, wordpress support for being MIA 🙁
