Hello,

Are you asking what path to put into the php.ini file for open_basedir protection? So something like the following:

Code:
open_basedir = /home/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp
If this is not what you are asking, please clarify with further details on what is needed.

Thanks!

Please what is the secure setting when using wordpress blog and phpbb forum on hosting account,

isnt
Code:
open_basedir = /home/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp
risky and too general?

When i add this line into php.ini my security audit script still says:

open_basedir - Your configuration should be changed to enforce a base directory (i.e. "/var/www/") to prevent PHP from accessing other directories on the underlying filesystem.
