We faced an error today in the morning, while trying to install an extension on our Joomla 2.5 website. It was most likely a web hosting issue. But we tracked it down and applied a hard fix into the Joomla site. 


While installing any Joomla extensions, if you get an error like this,
JFolder::create: Path not in open_basedir paths

Unable to create destination

Here is how you can solve it,

Goto this file: /libraries/joomla/filesystem/folder.php and edit it .
Find the following line :

$obd = ini_get('open_basedir');

And then comment it out like this

//$obd = ini_get('open_basedir');
