Language Warning

When using an open_basedir PHP restriction, I am receiving a PHP warning from WordPress:

[03-Oct-2017 02:07:04 UTC] PHP Warning:  is_readable(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/languages//en_US.mo) is not within the allowed path(s): (C:\inetpub\wwwroot) in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wp-includes\l10n.php on line 583

Looks like a bug. This is a Windows/IIS server, and it looks like it's trying to reference a Linux path possibly, instead of something relative.

I have tried fixing this by adding various forms of that path to open_basedir:


None of which have solved the issue. I'd rather not remove this security feature, so hopefully something can be done by the next maintenance release to address this.

Hello @EatonZ, thanks for your report. Does it still happen with all plugins disabled and a default theme (Twenty Seventeen) activated? Which locale are you using? Do you have a custom WP_LANG_DIR defined?

Sorry for the delay in responding. I couldn't reproduce it on a clean install, and I do not have a WP_LANG_DIR defined.

I found that open_basedir incurs a huge performance impact, so I got rid of it. I will try and reproduce again on a clean install when I have some free time and try to narrow it down further for you.
