could someone please help me as to why im getting error's from both the XOOPS info and backup modules?

I am using XOOPS 2.0.18.1

When i set up the XOOPS platform i installed backup and XOOPS info moduels i tested them and they both worked fine.

Now when i goto XOOPS info and then the system info tab i get errors of the following

Warning: is_executable() [function.is-executable]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/local/sbin/mount) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/myhost:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in /home/myhost/public_html/mysite/phpsysinfo/includes/common_functions.php on line 137

common_functions.php 158 find_program(mount) program not found on the machine



All the other tabs in the XOOPS info work fine just not the system info

Also when i goto the backup module and try and Backup database i get this error


Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 10385246 bytes) in /home/smyhost/public_html/mysite/modules/backup/admin/backup.php on line 131

All errors (144) queries (6) blocks (0) extra (0) timers (3)

Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in file /modules/backup/admin/backup.php line 157

Have some files become corrupt? it worked fine the last time i used it, there seems to be a very similar error in both the XOOPS info and back up modules and im not sure how to fix this, has anyone got any idea whats causing this?

If someone could help me with this i would very much appreciate it.

Thanks

This is related to server settings. It is not a bug in XOOPS core, XOOPS module and not a bug in server. Just one of the ways the server may be set for security. But this prevents script (phpsysinfo) for working.

This is aslo a server related. XOOPS needs more memory than you have. It is set in php.ini file and is controled by your hosting company.

This is a permission problem. First check that the folder /uploads/backup exists and check the cmod settings - try 0777.

Hi,

was it on the same server? And the same module varsion (phpsysinfo was introdused in xoopsinfo 2.13 I think)? If yes, probably there are some changes on the server - you may ask your host.

As for the memory (Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted) - your site grows and some action may require more memory than when it is new. You may try to do some cleaning... (check your sessions table for example) Xoopscare module may help in some tasks.

You may try to do DB backup in your host control panel if you have phpmyadmin or somthing like it and copy the file structure with ftp...

Hi i did a little more digging on this issue and also contacted my host.

For the following error i got them to increase the memory in the php.ini

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted

This did not fix this error, it seems when you try to back up the db for the first time in gzip it works perfect as you add modules and back up again it fails and gives a memory error(mabey it cant delete the original db files before it replaces them?)If you change this to back up to sql it works perfect, so mabey the back module is buggy in gzip mode?

The only problem i can'nt fix is all the errors in Xoopsinfo/systeminfo tab

Warning: is_executable() [function.is-executable]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/local/sbin/mount) is not within the allowed path(s):

My host stated the following
open_basedir is installed on your server. it blocks scripts if they try to open files outside of their accounts. It is security patch and we can't disable it on a shared server

Has anyone else got the same problem? and has anyone found a solution for this? a patch or something?

Everything works on the site its just the errors in Xoopsinfo/systeminfo that worries me incase it causes issues later on down the track.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks

I had the open_basedir problem on a shared server when I first started.

It was cured by making a /tmp directory my webspace root folder and then setting the php.ini file such that upload_tmp_dir and session.save_path pointed to this new directory.

See if your CPanel allows you to alter some php settings. If not then ask your host to do it for you.
