    Lightbulb "open_basedir restriction in effect" error on Sites using Plesk

    Some of you might be having this error showing up... I got this error when updating extensions with Extension Manager, but you could experience the same error under different conditions. If you use a Plesk enabled hosting provider or you ARE a hosting provider and Parallels partner like me, heres the fix

    This error shows up because of the way Plesk manages security for all Vhosts, so the way to fix this, is to create a specific vhost.conf file for the site that has Joomla and Extensions Manager enabled.

    Open your vhost.conf file or create one if you dont already have one.

    ... and insert the following code...

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/your.domain/httpdocs>
    	        <IfModule sapi_apache2.c>
    	                php_admin_flag engine on
    	                php_admin_flag safe_mode off
    	                php_admin_value open_basedir "/var/www/vhosts/your.domain/httpdocs:.:/php:/tmp"
    	        <IfModule mod_php5.c>
    	                php_admin_flag engine on
    	                php_admin_flag safe_mode off
    	                php_admin_value open_basedir "/var/www/vhosts/your.domain/httpdocs:.:/php:/tmp"
    Reconfigure the domain using the httpdmng command... restart the httpd service and thats it! Problem fixed.

    Hope it helps.
