Open_basedir restriction in effect

I receive the following error in piwik 3 beta

WARNING: <full-path-to-piwik>/plugins/UserCountry/LocationProvider/GeoIp/Pecl.php(130): Warning - is_dir(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(//) is not within the allowed path(s): (<all allowed paths>) - Piwik 3.0.0-b1 - Please report this message in the Piwik forums: (please do a search first as it might have been reported already)

This is probably due to the fact that the ‘geoip.custom_directory’ PHP ini option is set to ‘’, but since it is asked of me to do so and it might help others who face the same message and don’t know where it came from, I’m posting it anyway.
