Error During Installation - iPage

Permalink
Hi Everyone, First time installing on a remote server. Have installed many times on a local server and haven't had any issues.

The last thing I saw before it came up with this error was "Creating Admin".

{"error":true,"message":"session_start(): open(\/var\/php_sessions\/sess_38af686649a98e6c699165f36502741c670089e9, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2).

Trace:

Hey, Found the solution - for iPage anyway.

You need to go to CGI and Scripted Language Support, then click on PHP Scripting.

This takes you into the default PHP.ini file. You need to search for php_sessions and change the session.save_path = "/var/php_sessions" to "/home/users/web/[num]/ipg.[username]/cgi-bin/tmp" - You can find this in the first bullet point on the page.

Let me know if it doesn't work for you

HI, thx for help.
I found using firebug console my hosting company was running theirs stat script in the background. When they turn it off it works fine.
