    I have the same error in stylemixtheme activate. I tried as your resolution but unable to fix this issue. Could you tell me how to solve the issue?

    The error as

    PHP Warning: is_readable(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(G:\PleskVhosts\globalmastersdoc.com\httpdocs\TaseesDemo/wp-content/plugins/G:/PleskVhosts/globalmastersdoc.com/httpdocs/TaseesDemo/wp-content/themes/consulting/admin/includes/envato-market/languages/envato-market-en_US.mo) is not within the allowed path(s): (G:/PleskVhosts//globalmastersdoc.com\;C:\Windows\Temp\) in G:\PleskVhosts\globalmastersdoc.com\httpdocs\TaseesDemo\wp-includes\l10n.php on line 584

    Solved. First I have changed only open_basedir in Domain > example.com > PHP Settings. Now I I have Changed the open_basedir parameter in my .user.php also like  open_basedir="none"


    Now it is working fine

    Thank you for the feedback. I added notice about '
    .user.ini' file to the article.
