Image problems

Okay heres the error I get on my php pages when try to load an image.

Warning: open_basedir restriction in effect. File is in wrong directory in /home/.bacci/theninth/ on line 878

the files are in a dir called hlstatimg

And I checked the php script on my home computer and set it up to work fine. So why am I getting this open_basedir problem and what exactly is it?>
