Random Block

I have been fiddling with the random block code for a few days and as I am completely new to PHP am having trouble with it.
I have put the block-random.php file in my site base directory and tried it in the blog (geeklog) main directory. I also added the function to the lib_custom.php file and uploaded it. I got the folowing errors.

Warning: phpblock_galleryrandomphoto(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/gallery/init.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/johnc:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in /home/johnc/public_html/blog/system/lib-custom.php on line 152

Warning: phpblock_galleryrandomphoto(/gallery/init.php): failed to open stream: Operation not permitted in /home/johnc/public_html/blog/system/lib-custom.php on line 152

Fatal error: phpblock_galleryrandomphoto(): Failed opening required '/gallery/init.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/johnc/public_html/blog/system/lib-custom.php on line 152

Is this something simple or would I need to give you how I modified the code to get a beter answer?

Thanks for your help again

It looks like the code thinks your gallery path is in /gallery.

That would put it at the root of the filesytem. You should fix that.

Thanks for the reply but I dont understand how to write the path. The gallery lives at

my site's public_html/gallery/

geek log lives at

mysite's public_html/blog

Thanks for this help. I did try that path in the code for the function but still getting these errors
Warning: phpblock_galleryrandomphoto(/home/johnc/public_html/gallery/ init.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/johnc/public_html/blog/system/lib-custom.php on line 82

Fatal error: phpblock_galleryrandomphoto(): Failed opening required '/home/johnc/public_html/gallery/ init.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/johnc/public_html/blog/system/lib-custom.php on line 82

Sorry to be a pain.

I went out and bought MySQL and PhP for Dummies but it may take some time for me to get my head around it.

Look at this:

'/home/johnc/public_html/gallery/ init.php'

There is a space before init.php. It still looks like your paths are incorrect.

try setting the file attributes of your temp/block-random.cache file to 777
