Sessions /tmp directory warning??


Recommended Posts

I have just installed my 3rd OsCommerce shop, but I ran into a completely new problem for me.


In the "shop" I get one of those famous warnings. This one reads:


Warning: The sessions directory does not exist: /tmp. Sessions will not work until this directory is created.


I have no clue WHERE I should create this directory. I think I have done it in all possible directories, but the warning messege remains?!

The / in front of tmp puts it at the root of the file system. Create a tmp folder under catalog. Set the perms to 666. Then, go to the admin screens. Under Configuration->Sessions, change Sessions directory to tmp, DROP THE /.


See if that works.

Best not to use folders for storing sessions on a shared server. You can get rid of the warning by storing sessions in the database, by setting the last line of both configure.php files to read 'mysql' where indicated.
