Not saving sessions

Recommended Posts

When I try to do a session_start() in php I get the error:

 

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/home/s/serve/tmp/\sess_t1gtuh8s36jkqcc9ic6p6suse0, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory

 

even though in php.ini the save path for sessions is clearly set to:

 

session.save_path = "/tmp/"

 

I've no idea where the /home/s/serve path thing is coming from in the first error, I've searched all the files for that string and can't seem to locate it. I haven't changed anything in my php.ini that I know of.

 

I'm using Uniform Server [3.5-Apollo]

 

thanks for your help...

A quick test, I placed this code at the top of a php page:

 

<?php

// starts the session

session_start();

 

// sets variable in the session

$_SESSION['fred']='test';

 

?>

 

No problems when run on XP Home, I was wondering if it’s a Vista issue.

 

Like you I have no idea where that strange path /home/s/serve/tmp/ comes from. :)

I found the problem - a rogue .htaccess file that was sitting in my /www folder from another project I worked on recently. Deleted the .htaccess and it worked fine.

 

My own fault, oops...

I have no problem with “oops” been down that path many times myself.

Its nice to see what resolved the problem may help others if they experience a similar problem so thanks for the feedback.

 

All the best

Ric :)
