The solution was already mentioned in my previous post:

The only way around it (at the moment and for the time being) is to manually 
edit /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/siteX and to adjust the open_basedir line in 
there. But of course changing the web settings for that site through the GUI 
may then overwrite your changes.

Alternatively you could create a directory on a separate partition and use 
that one for such content that's shared between sites. Like "/var/sharedweb" 
and then add that to the open_basedir line.

With best regards
