Upgraded with some issues...(please check my thread about upgrading)

I can't currently install anything (plugins, apps, templates, none). Everytime I submit the file, this appears:


The rewrite module is already loaded, and I set correctly the UPLOAD_TMP_DIR and OPEN_BASEDIR in the php.ini configuration. I also ensured there is a AllowOverride All in my site config and the apache common config. No system logs or error logs show anything related. The whole site root folder has chmod 777, btw...


I'm out of ideas, so please, help.

Just something is wrong with mail. users are not receiving verification mail.

Response from the author:

This is not an issue with the release but rather an issue with your configuration and/or host.

There is something wrong with the 4.3.0 nulled version. Each time I install or upgrade to it, it shows error in the suite cp. It doesn't load and shows that there is a problem. When viewing the error logs on cpanel, shows there is something wrong with theme.php line 1695 but doesn't find the  wrong and don't know how to fix it. The admin panel is fine though except the main page. Please respond ASAP to know how to fix as I have deleted everything in my forum trying to fix but nothing works.

successfully upgraded.

NOTE: If you have changed your admin directory, upload the files and folders inside the admin installation folder to your renamed folder. If not you will get a session error.

I am still trying to enable open_basedir.
