Warning while OsCommerce Installation and Running


Recommended Posts



I have installed osCommerce in local server for testing.I am able to create a new customer.

But i cannot Login or Add an item to cart and proceed further.Only i can browse items in site.

No error is displayed while valid login.( no error message is displayed like this

Error: No match for E-Mail Address and/or Password.)

For invalid login i get message Error: No match for E-Mail Address and/or Password.

But I am getting a Warning in the Front page of osCommerce at START UP

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

I have found a directory setting value /tmp/ in database for Cache Directory for DIR_FS_CACHE.

i have created a tmp directory in root but still error warning persists.

I have created / copied a new file in includes/local/configure.php which was not available intially.

In this define('STORE_SESSIONS', ''); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'

is set like this.


Can any one please help me how to resolve this issue.
