Is there any critical risk or any other problem if the previous bp-core-avatars.php is used ?

    Have a similar problem ;-)

    Prev. installation WP 3.0 and BP 1.2.4.1
    Upgraded to BP 1.2.5

    In the blog comments of the blog with id 2 I got some warnings:

    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/is/htdocs/my-account-name/my-domain/www/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files//avatars/3) is not within the allowed path(s): (/is/htdocs/user_tmp/my-account-name:/tmp:/dev/null:/dev/urandom:/bin:/usr:/is/default.errors:/is/htdocs/my-account-name) in /is/htdocs/my-account-name/my-domain/www/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-avatars.php on line 150

    The Problem is, that there is no directory /wp-content/blogs.dir/1 in my installation! Besides the main blog I created only a second one (/wp-content/blogs.dir/2).

    If I copy bp-core-avatars.php from BP 1.2.4.1 in my 1.2.5 installation the waring is gone! But this does not seem to be a proper solution because there a some changes in the php file …

    My solution, which I found some where else in this forum: I put the following two lines in /wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php:

    define( ‘BP_AVATAR_URL’, ‘http://’ . $_SERVER . ‘/wp-content/uploads’ );
    define( ‘BP_AVATAR_UPLOAD_PATH’, $_SERVER . ‘/wp-content/uploads’ );

    The warning is gone :-)
