Open_basedir Restrictions Are Set To Off In Php.ini Yet I Still Get The Warnings

Mar 11, 2007

What is this about? If I ssh to my server and look at php.ini I see this:

; open_basedir, if set, limits all file operations to the defineddirectory
; and below. This directive makes most sense if used in a per-directory
; or per-virtualhost web server configuration file. This directive is
; *NOT* affected by whether Safe Mode is turned On or Off.
; open_basedir =

but on the site I'm getting this error:

Warning: main(): open_basedir restriction in effect.....

Uploading Images - Safe_mode And Open_basedir Restrictions

I've developed a site that requires the owner to upload images. We had some hiccups at first on the live server due to safe_mode and open_basedir restrictions - sometimes images would upload, other times not;we got around that by setting the tmp dir local to the site: /usr/www/ This worked. For months. Now the problem has returned. Sometimes images upload, other times not. I am not seeing any error messages. When it does fail, the $_FILES array data are inserted into the database, but the BLOB data seems to be lost. Only once have I not been able to upload from work, while the client has not been able to do so for a week now.

Open_basedir Restriction In Effect. (unlink(): Open_basedir)

unlink(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/httpdocs/userImgThumb/) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/blah/httpdocs:/tmp) in /var/www/vhosts/blah/httpdocs/pages/myimages.php on line 105

This error comes about when using unlink() within a php script to remove a file. the path to the file is also correct.

.htaccess Restrictions

Im wondering if it is possible to use a .htaccess file to prevent users from viewing particular files or to show a different file if they type in the URL. As in, I don't have access to put files outside of the root folder and would quite like it if various config files were not accessible to view or download. However I would still want files within the system to be able toa ccess, modify and run these files whether they be PHP classes or CSV files etc.

S3 / Cloudfront Download Restrictions

I'm using S3 and Cloudfront for an application deployed on EC2. The permissions seem (in my limited knowledge of AWS) to be either public or private. How can I make files accessible from Cloudfront / S3 to requests from my EC2 instances, but not elsewhere? I'm sure I'm probably just missing something in the AWS console.

Directory Listing With Restrictions?

I am trying to make a script that lists only folders within a folder. The thing is that I have users who can create folders within their folders so basically what I'm trying to do is to have a way for users to manage their folders and storing files... My problem is that I want to make php "think" that the root folder is their home directory and they cannot go upper than their home directory. Currently my php function doesn't do that, it only shows the content of the directory...and if the user goes one level up and again one level up ...and so on....he could browse the entire hard drive.

function directoryList($path) {
$dirStruct = array();

Change Status With Restrictions?

I'm working on a status changing implementation for records. For example, when a record is created, it commences in a 'pending' state until a administrator changes its state to either 'active', 'rejected' or 'revoked'.The thing is, if a status has been changed from pending to active, the status cannot be changed back to pending or rejected. A rejected status can be changed back to active. A revoked status cannot changed to active, pending or rejected. At the moment I have a series of if/else statements to detect this but I wondered if there was a more logical and standard approach.

What File Type Restrictions Should Use

I have a question regarding file type restrictions when uploading to a database . I am currently using the MAMP program rather than an actual online server and the MySQL version is: MySQL 5.1.44. I want to have one column in a table for virtually any type of file a user would wish to load, .mov, .jpg, .doc, .pdf, etc.

you should add restrictions on what the user is allowed to upload. The idea is that they can actually upload anything they want. Is security really a threat by doing this? And what would the threat be? As I don't really know much about security.

If so, should there be any types of files that I would be wise to restrict?, would it be wise for example to restrict uploads that are .php scripts as that is what I have written the website code in. It would change the whole concept of this aspect of my website if I were to only allow certain files so I would prefer to limit the users as little as possible. Sorry if this is a silly question, like I say I don't really know much about security. I've only gone as far as encrypting passwords as there won't be any sensitive data being stored.

Getting Around Email Restrictions With Hosting Providers?

So my hosting provider is limiting emails sent out to 2 at a time, which means no array of emails.Right now I'm using Pear to send html emails to multiple users who sign up together.Is there a solution to loop through the mail() function multiple times ultimately sending out multiple emails? How will the performance be? The hosting company actually suggested we look for some solution to by pass their restrictions, but i don't know where to look.

Merge These 2 Arrays (sql) To Get 1 Array (due To Some Restrictions)?

I have 2 arrays, both from a SQL query, each from a different database. Since it's not possible to merge these 2 SQL queries into 1 query to get 1 array (due to some restrictions), I am forced to combine the 2 arrays. Problem is, I can't seem to get this working.

This is array 1:

echo '<ul id="friends">';
foreach($result as $friend => $value)
echo '<li><img src="'.$value['pic_square'].'" alt="" />'.$value['uid'].' ' . $value['name'] . '</li>';
echo '</ul>';

What do I need? I want to merge these 2 arrays so that the phonenr from array 2 will be added behind the username from array 1.

Example what the output should look like:

picture Dave 020-12345
picture Mike 020-56789

fbid and uid are the id's to link each other, but are not shown in the combined array.

Disable Openbase_dir Restrictions Over HTTPS?

I'm trying to enable a php file to access another file residing in a folder outside the root web directory over an HTTPS connection. This works fine over HTTP but for some reason HTTPS connections are failing to read the file. I've enabled this over HTTP by disabling openbase_dir in a vhost.conf file, as follows:

php_admin_value open_basedir "/var/www/vhosts/"
php_admin_value open_basedir none

I've then tried both appending and replacing the contents of vhost.conf with the following:

php_admin_value open_basedir "/var/www/vhosts/"
php_admin_value open_basedir none

However after reconfiguring the server to use the new vhost.conf file and restarting apache, attempts to have the test php file inside the web directory read the file residing in my_folder over an HTTPS connection continue to fail.

Php.ini & Open_basedir

I'm getting the "Warning: open_basedir restriction in effect. File is in wrong directory in " error message. So, I thought I could just change the open_basedir setting in my php.ini file, but before I do so, are there any implications to this? Will my scripts continue to work? Or, is there another way around this error?
