Before installing Anwiki, the system makes sure that sessions path is writable.
Unfortunately, when a server uses "open_basedir" restriction and when sessions path is outside, Anwiki will call is_writable() on the session_path which will throw a warning "open_basedir restriction in effect" and will return false, even when the sessions path is writable in fact and works correctly.

I suggest to not perform the is_writable() test when open_basedir is set. So we won't be able to detect that sessions path is not writable in such case, but we also won't block Anwiki installation on "false positives" setups.
This task depends upon
