All right paganini;


You were desperate for help. You came here like so many of us do. We all try to help when we can.


Kappaluppa is apparently as desperate as you were when you posted. Some others may be eagerly awaiting what your resolution was. So are you going to share?


Just a thought.




If I build it...they will come.

If I don't try to build it.....I will never know!

My thoughts are one of two things -


He added a record in the configuration table defining the path for SESSION_WRITE_DIRECTORY


or he edited configure.php or application.top and defined the SESSION_WRITE_DIRECTORY for the path.

thanks, hankfid. I was very desparate! I searched and scoured, searched and scoured. And posted and posted and posted! I would have posted an update, but I can't remember all the places i've pleaded for help.


the problem i had was that in the modified sessions.php file I had to comment out a couple lines, and replace them with return true:

# return session_start();

return true;



This took care of the errors. (see http://www.kappaluppa.com/freeman/hair.php at the top of the page.) (all this headache for such a little thing! !@#$%^ )




Now that I've got it pulling the info out of the specials page, i want the items to show up randomly. But this problem is more a php/coding problem rather than an OSC problem and I won't post it here.




If anyone else ever wants to do this sort of thing - if you are a glutten for punishment - let me know and I will offer whatever help I can!


Thanks for your help! :lol:
