Hi, I just bought the Breeze theme and installed it on a working site and now I get the error - Warning: is_readable() [function.is-readable]: open_basedir restriction in effect…. etc. You can view this error at http://www.accentstaging.co.nz. Any ideas

Hi, My apologies for the delayed reply. This sounds like a server/hosting issue with your PHP configuration.

You may want to check the permissions on your files or ask your web host what can be done to alleviate this message.

That said, I’d also mention that PHP warning messages not be shown on a production server. This message is not necessarily an “error” but a “warning” typically displayed on development environments.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Checked the permissions on those folders/files and they are all fine. Any free theme works with the site, it is just Breeze that doesn’t work. Any further ideas?
