PHP Error: CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when in safe_mode or an open_basedir is set

I used the below code in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/Q_23509647.html to post my form data to another script.jsp url, it is a payment checkout (should redirect to that)

<?php
$name = $_POST['name]';
$age = $_POST['age]';
$code = $_POST['code]';

$url1 = "http://your_first_script.jsp";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, 'name=$name&age=$age&code=$code'); // html form POST fields replace with your form data

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FAILONERROR, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

$result = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
//echo $result;

//$url2 = "url2.php";
//....
//....
?>

I got an error:

Warning: curl_setopt() [function.curl-setopt]: CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when in safe_mode or an open_basedir is set in /home/public_html/html/send.php on line 47

Warning: curl_setopt() [function.curl-setopt]: CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when in safe_mode or an open_basedir is set in /home/public_html/html/send.php on line 57

However my php ver 4.4.8 has safe mode off and open basedir is not set

Any idea?
