The e-commerce.

Unable to upload images for products &categories


Recommended Posts



I've scoured many other posts and tried the help sections but no apparent success yet


I get this error message:



Warning: move_uploaded_file(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/home/httpd/vhlinks/www.mywebsite.com/images/nov_s.gif) is not within the allowed path(s): (/tmp:/usr/local/apache/phpinc/:/home/heather/myweb/) in /home/heather/myweb/admin/includes/classes/upload.php on line 94

Error Error: File upload not saved.


The chmod permissions for the /images/ directory is set at 777, and after reading this post http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?sho...97entry233697


I called my webhost, but they said that the php.ini

file_uploads = On ; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads was already on .. that said, he didn't actually check he just seemed insistent they were.


Any ideas appreciated! :thumbsup:

Solution :


My hosting company got back to me after I emailed them


It appears you have the home directory of your site set to: /home/httpd/vhlinks/ww.mywebsite.com in the configuration. You should change this to /home/heather/myweb to fix the error.




Solved! Yay!@ :lol:
