Open_basedir issue (kinsta)

Facing the following issue for several weeks and can’t get it solved. Problem occurs when calling $wpdb - (/wp-includes/wp-load.php line 412):

if ( file_exists( WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/db.php' ) )

2022/05/16 09:18:11 [error] 102518#102518: *3722311 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Warning: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect.

Site is running on Kinsta. Would be great if anyone can assist. Thanks!


I have found out that after each deploy a symlink is automatically being created. Please check below

./public/releases/20220516155944/web/app/db.php → /srv/www/

./public/shared/source/site/web/app/db.php → /srv/www/

When I manually delete the symlink through SSH the problem is solved. But after each deploy the symlink is automatically re-created. This is really strange since I removed query-monitor from composer.json.

Hi @timmen22,

Having the same issue and I can confirm that this solution works.
Is it possible to add the deploy hook to remove the symlinks after each deploy?
