  • First problem with vBulletin

    Warning: tempnam() [function.tempnam]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File() is not within the allowed path(s): (/home:/usr:/tmp:/var/netenberg) in [path]/includes/class_dm_userpic.php on line 204

    Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: Filename cannot be empty in [path]/includes/class_image.php on line 333

    This happens when I try to upload my avatar.
    Any known solution? Thanks!

    Hi, I think it has to do with the folders permissions.

    Did you check if you set chmod -> 0777?

      You have open_basedir restrictions on your server. To get uploads to work you need to create a 'tmp' subdirectory under your main hosting directory and chmod it to 777. Then in the Admin CP set "Upload In Safe Mode?" to 'Yes' and point the "Safe Mode Temp Directory" to that directory. If you placed the tmp directory in the right place, the path to the Safe Mode Temp Directory will be:


      Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> Safe Mode Temporary Directory

      Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> Safe Mode Upload Enabled -> Yes

      Also the php.ini setting for 'upload_tmp_dir' may be empty. It's possible you (as root) or your host will need to edit php.ini and set 'upload_tmp_dir' to point to the full path to a directory on the server that is chmod'd to 1777. You will also need to restart Apache after making this change.
