I have this error since I transferred my website to digital ocean VPS. I want to export a file, this file will be saved on my computer, but it is not working anymore because I have this error.

I checked the /tmp and /var/zpanel/temp directory, but they have full rights.

Logging from my opencart: 2013-11-07 9:49:30 - PHP Warning: realpath(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/tmp) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/zpanel/hostdata/zadmin/public_html/domain_com:/var/zpanel/temp/) in /var/zpanel/hostdata/zadmin/public_html/domain_com/system/PHPExcel/Classes/PHPExcel/Shared/File.php on line 136 2013-11-07 9:49:30 - PHP Warning: tempnam(): open_basedir restriction in effect.

Make sure the drive you’re trying to save to isn’t full. I wish I’d seen that suggestion before this never-ending morning…

@jelwin: zPanel does not allow scripts to write to /tmp. You have to modify your script so that it writes to <code> /var/zpanel/temp/</code> instead.
