open_basedir and safe_mode

VPS : CentOS 6.8 x64 Admin: VestaCP

I am trying to rsync my sites from another server. Rsync goes fine.

When I try to reach the site (the new one, rsynced to this server), I got an error in my cakephp logs:

2016-07-21 22:09:28 Warning: Warning (2): curl_setopt(): CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when an open_basedir is set in 

I tried to disable open_basedir in /etc/php.ini by : open_basedir = none I don’t find any safe_mode in this php.ini

In /usr/local/vesta/php/lib/php.ini , safe_mode = Off and open_basedir = none

I still get the errors after a service httpd restart

What can I do ?

Even if it was warning, I had to fix the issue. I hate warnings :)

So the issue was fixed:

The file to edit was:


And I had to comment:

php_admin_value open_basedir /home/admin/web/

This question was answered by @BrookDO:

What you’re seeing is a PHP warning message (not an error) so that message should not mean the curl request failed.

Because you’re using Vesta, ccording to docs: you may need to modify /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini on Ubuntu.
