    Hello,

    I have installed Own Cloud and it is throwing an alert that says open_basedir is blocking "/dev/urandom" so I need to enable it manually. I am running Litespeed Enterprise if that makes a difference.

    I have been searching for a while and this is the closest I have found:

    php-set = open_basedir=/tmp/:/usr/share/webapps/nextcloud:/etc/webapps/nextcloud:/dev/urandom

    (Source: Nextcloud - ArchWiki)​

    Questions:

    1. Is it safe to add a line like this on the account's php.ini?

    2. If it is, which paths should I include?

    3. Any other advise? I am way out of my depth on this one.

    :-/

    Here's another comment someone else made, in a forum:

    I found that the following string worked:

    {WEBSPACEROOT}{/}{:}{TMP}{/}:/dev/urandom

    Hi,

    I've searched for this as well, but have not found much documentation on it. Did you find the above solution to work?

    Thanks,
