Do the VPS accounts have this limitation? I installed a security extension to scan uploads among other things.

Do note that not all servers support this feature. If the uploaded files directory is blocked by open_basedir restrictions, no scanning will take place. If unsure, ask your host if they have put open_basedir restrictions which block access to the PHP uploads directory. If they answer affirmatively, this Admin Tools feature will not work unless this restriction is lifted.

Hello DaveOzric,

The open_basedir setting is turned off by default on VPS and dedicated plans, so this feature will not interfere with your ability to scan uploads.

Best Regards,
