Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a new user so hope you can help. I am using brinkster as my web host. I have installed the site and it showing up ok on my web space except i get 3 error messages at the top of the screen. They begin

 

Warning: session_save_path() [function.session-save-path]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect

 

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by

 

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent

 

Can anyone explain what i need to do to fix these issues. Thanks.

Hi, I had same troublle and did this:

 

.......

Cause : Previous bug in PHP fixed in latest version (Chances are your ISP has updated to the new version)

 

 

Fix: Goto Admin / Configuration / Sessions and change the "Sessions Directory" to tmp (no slashes)

 

If you can't get into Admin, goto your Database Admin page (usually PhPAdmin app.)

Click on any table on the left hand side.

Click on SQL at the top of the screen

Overtype whatever appears in the SQL window with ...

 

 

UPDATE configuration SET configuration_value = 'tmp' WHERE configuration_key='SESSION_WRITE_DIRECTORY'

 

 

Click GO

...........

 

God luck

The problem has nothing to do with the above post.

 

Your hosting company is running PHP in Safe Mode. This means that you have to supply a full pathway to the 'tmp' folder in osC Admin --> Configuration --> Sessions - even if you have set your configure.php files to store sessions in the database and not in files.

 

Look in one of the configure.php files for the full DIR_FS pathway. Let's say, as an example only, that it's /var/www/htdocs/ This would make the pathway you have to input into osC Admin --> Configuration --> Sessions /var/www/htdocs/tmp/

Actually he's right. We had a user yesterday in this thread:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?sho...45entry754745

 

with the same old problem and he dug out the real cause and the solution. I pointed kjolebutikken to that thread and it solved the problem for him.

 

It's much simpler than posting a longer, more complicated answer.

Local: Mac OS X 10.5.8 - Apache 2.2/php 5.3.0/MySQL 5.4.10 • Web Servers: Linux
