    Is the open_base cPanel tweak needed when using PHP under PHPsuEXEC. Wouldnt a permission error occur anyway making that tweak pointless in this scenario?

    open_basedir is just another layer of protection.

    In a optimum setup, PHP suEXEC along should be enough. But, sometimes you have to loose the file permissions to make some application happy, in that case open_basedir is helpful.
