    i noticed that on freebsd servers vbulletin for some reason tries to use /var/tmp/ and /var/tmp is not included in the open_basedir directive under the <VirtualHost> entry which stops the vbulletin from working (some functions)
    error is:
    Code:
    Warning: filesize(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/tmp/php5g5WfW) is not within the allowed path(s): (/usr/home/anwar:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in /includes/functions_file.php on line 286
    
    i had to find and replace all lines like this:
    Code:
    php_admin_value open_basedir "/usr/home/user/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp"
    
    with
    Code:
    php_admin_value open_basedir "/usr/home/user/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp:/var/tmp"
    
    easy way for replacing it is using "nano" editor or "vi" for newbies nano is easier just ^W + R^ and replace /usr/local/lib/php:/tmp with /usr/local/lib/php:/tmp:/var/tmp

    maybe cpanel guys need to add /var/tmp to tweak security settings under WHM so it adds it to the line when editing httpd.conf

    Temporary solution

    I find a temporary solution for patch httpd.conf

    Here you can find "substitute" perl script:
