The e-commerce.

where is sessions /tmp suppose to be


Recommended Posts

Am just installing OSCommerce on a local testbed (Win Xp, Apache, PHP, MySql, etc.) I keep getting session_start errors:

Warning: session_start(): open(/tmp\sess_12e50eb47e53c13321a0642c570a3d73, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in C:\Awebs\testbed\catalog\oscommerce-2.2ms2\catalog\admin\includes\functions\sessions.php on line 67


It can't find the /tmp directory, or am I missing something else??


Upon initial installation attempt (after register_globals ON) the install/setup went fine, then whenever I try to perform an update in Admistration I get these errors.

You can store sessions in your database - just change this in your configure.php fileS:


 define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');

Try shutting the server down, emptying all Temporary Internet Files and all Offline Content and then rebooting the server.





Thanks for the suggestion, tried it, even rebooted the entire system. still happens but only in admin. If I go to catalog I don't get these errors.

There are two configure.php files





Did you update the admin one?




Thanks, that did it, didn't know there were 2 different configure.php files to deal with.
