JFolder::create: Path not in open_basedir paths

Error:

  • Can't install Smart Slider.
  • If it was already installed, slider looks messed up, slides are under eachother.
  • Cache files aren't created.

Installation error message:

  • JFolder::create: Path not in open_basedir paths

Cache file creation error message:

  • Warning: filemtime(): stat failed for .../media/nextend/... in .../libraries/nextend2/nextend/library/libraries/assets/cache.php

Cause:

The open_basedir in servers defaultly have NULL values, which means, that all files and folders are accessible. If your host gave a value to this configuration option, then it is limiting down the access only to the given path. Your error is happening, because the path is wrong, so you should contact your server host to fix that.
