Warning: is_writable() [function.is-writable]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/lib/php5) is not within the allowed path(s):

was there no path output after the error message? could it be a change on your web host setup?


Sorry. In index.php, change




fixed in [1008]


Just a follow-up note that there's no change to Piwik requirements. I checked the PHP bug tracker, and a bug in is_writable() behaviour wrt open_basedir() where is_writable() would return true, was fixed for php 5.1.3. This is already the minimum required version for Piwik.
