Hi.
I have installed TWG to the letter (I hope) however when I try to access the admin panel for the first time I get the following error message:

Warning: realpath() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/www/sevac.co.uk/gallery/admin/index.php on line 58

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php4/share/pear') in /home/www/sevac.co.uk/gallery/admin/index.php on line 58


Not too good with PHP so any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Seems my host (Awardspace) has chosen to disable realpath, whatever it may be :cry:
Is there a way round this maybe?

stupid restriction - because this does only remove ../ from filenames.

you can remove this if you like - but there are about 10 places where you have to remove this. This works on most server.

I only have added it because there are some wervers that don't allow .. in the path when including.

some things don't work without this - like divx video include because they don't allow ../ in paths - ask you hoster to remove this restriction.

I think he has only done this because he don't know better ;). I know that there is a security problem with realpath before php 5.0.3 + safemode

is safemode on and your php < 5.0.3 ?

How would I remove it and where am I likely to find the 10 places?
Sorry to be a pain. :wink:

you have to search for it in all files of TWG.
But not all functions will work 100% - not sure if the user management will work - try and tell me.

should actually work because the function is realpath()

and you can leave the ()

most important for you are the ones the start with include

Removed...
require realpath (dirname(__FILE__) . "/../config.php")); // config from TWG
require_once realpath(_QUIXPLORER_PATH . "/../inc/filefunctions.inc.php"); // config from TWG
..from admin/index.php and have reached the login page.. fingers crossed

Got into admin panel but still too many problems accessing directories etc. Also one or two other problems which I assume are part of my problem.
Annoying really as I wanted to use this but it seems I cant :cry:

I'll send them one but I've looked on their forum and found a couple of other peoples problems (not with TWG) with realpath but they dont seem very helpful.
I'll try anyway..
