New SSL - images don't load in admin


Recommended Posts



I have implemented an SSL certificate on my osCommerce 2.2-MS2 installation. The only problem now is that the product images won't load in the admin backend (which now is in https).

PHP says

Warning: is_dir() [function.is-dir]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/images) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpsdocs:/tmp) in /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpsdocs/admin/categories.php on line 338

and osCommerce below that line

Error: directory 'images' is not in the index: /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/images/

The directory anyhow exists and is CHMOD 777.


I guess it is a problem with the preferences in admin/includes/configure.php

I just want to keep it simple by keeping the images directory in httpdocs.


I really don't understand why it says that the images directory can't be found.


Thank you in advance for your help
