Open_basedir and subdirectories problem

Open_basedir and subdirectories problem
Hi for now I have this httpd-vhosts.conf
php_admin_value open_basedir "C:/aweb/freehosting/users/"

<VirtualHost *:80>
# ServerName
ServerName pcsny

ServerAlias *
ServerAlias *

VirtualDocumentRoot "C:/aweb/freehosting/users/%1"
php_admin_value open_basedir "C:/aweb/freehosting/users/"
php_admin_value safe_mode 1

<Directory "C:/aweb/freehosting/users/">
Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride none
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Script makes under the subdirectory
New folders (they are login name of a new user)

To access to their web pages users have to type subdomains like this

how to force users stay in their folders and not to be able to affect other users with malicious code like

r57shell - http-shell by RST/GHC | | | version 1.24
if only I could do something like this
php_admin_value open_basedir "C:/aweb/freehosting/users/%1"
get subdomain entered in browser then fix top folder accessible for this user….
PS. I am on windows 2003, XAMPP

"php_admin_value" does not work with the substitutions (e.g. %1)from "VirtualDocumentRoot".

a) make different normal vhosts and "php_admin_value" for each vhost and user
b) use mod_macro (I don't know if this is availible for Apache/Win)

and of course:
c) multiuser webhosting on Windows should better be done with IIS.
