Akeeba Backup Unhandled Exception

Post by PepoMT » Wed Sep 27, 2023 8:54 am

When I tried to back my site the following message was shown: "Akeeba Backup - An unhandled Exception has been detected, 500 realpath(): Argument #1 ($path) must not contain any null bytes
File &lt;root&gt;/administrator/components/com_akeebabackup/engine/Util/ConfigurationCheck.php Line 295". I was surprised, because I had never problem with backing up the site. Provider updated the PHP from 7.4 to 8.2 only. Is any idea to fix this problem?

The line number 295 in the script shows that Akeeba Backup is checking the paths configured by your into the open_basedir directive in the php.ini file. Something is wrong in those paths. Ask you host to fix the issue.

Ref. PHP: Description of core php.ini directives - open_basedir
