The 'open_basedir restriction' is a hosting restriction. There may be another reason, but some hosts use it as a means of helping to prevent malicious scripts from being run. (especially in certain directories)

Basically the folder which you have uploaded the phpBB forum to has this restriction in effect - there is nothing we can do, you have to contact your host for support. (or possibly move the 'phpBB2' folder to a location not under this restriction?)
