Warning is_dir(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/home/vg000web02/15/07/7010715/web/themes//ee) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/xxx.com/:/tmp/) ee/legacy/libraries/Core.php, line 196

Tried a number of possible solutions but nothing worked so far. The error prevents from making any updates to the site.

Please advice. Thanks, -Vadim


The error looks like it is being caused by a path configuration issue - check that the settings for URL and Paths on your site are set correctly. (go to Control Panel / Settings / General Settings / URL and Paths).



Changing "URL and Paths" combined with changing open_basedir to "none" fixed the problem. Thanks for the help.


If possible turn off the open basedir restriction.


If it doesn't work after updating the path and you have cache enabled, try to disable and enable the cache.
