[SOLVED] Warning: is_readable() [function.is-readable]:

6 years 10 months ago - 6 years 10 months ago #243954 by jimstrong
Warning: is_readable() [function.is-readable]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/dev/urandom) is not within the allowed path(s):

I'm getting this error on user registration despite upgrading to Joomla 3.2.2 and CB 1.91 (the server is running PHP 5.3.26) and the user is getting "Incorrect username or password. Please try again."

I have no third party authentication plugins installed (just Authentication - Joomla and Authentication - Cookie)

I can see the advice on the forum is to upgrade Joomla and CB, both of which I've done.

Thanks for your thoughts

That error is a login error and you're getting this when attempting to register? Sounds like some sort of bad URL rewriting. If you've any 3rd party SEF extensions installed I suggest disabling them completely and retrying. CB makes use of is_readable to check if a plugins files can even be properly loaded in. You should talk with your host as it looks like open_basedir is set too strictly.

Thanks - I have no 3rd Party SEF installed, so have raised a ticket with the hosting company; will let you know how I get on.

Have now resolved this with the hosting company - they were unable do much about the open_baseurl function as we are on a shared sever.

They amended the PasswordHash.php file in a similar way to a link here somewhere and registration is all OK now:-

Added the below code at line 51
======
if (@is_readable('/dev/urandom') &&
======
instead of
======
if (is_readable('/dev/urandom') &&
======
