    That's a limitation/setting on the server (open_basedir setting in PHP config).

    If you contact your host and show them the error details, they should be able to resolve it for you.

    my host is ovh, (unmanaged) I have to make any edits like that myself.

    i tried setting open_basedir to none based on a post I read on google, but that didn't solve it.

    My server is an ubuntu 14.04 dedicated

    Just disable that row.
    I have this (nginx)

    You will have something like this:
    fastcgi_param PHP_ADMIN_VALUE open_basedir=$document_root/:/usr/local/lib/php/:/tmp/;
    And make it commented:
    #fastcgi_param PHP_ADMIN_VALUE open_basedir=$document_root/:/usr/local/lib/php/:/tmp/;
    then restart php and nginx or apache
