Joomla Session Save Path Unwriteable Error
Trying to install Joomla manually and getting a session.save_path is un-writeable error.
Additional Notes: If the error persists, one of two things can be done:
- Log in to your Just Host cPanel account.
- In the cPanel under Files select the File Manager icon.
- Find the public_html file and then php.ini and then right click.
- Select Code Edit.
- Around line 824 is something which looks like ;session.save_path = /tmp
- Remove the semicolon ';' in the front so it looks like this: session.save_path = /tmp
- Make the path go to the temp folder on your account session.save_path = /home/username/tmp where username is your cPanel username listed inside of cPanel.
- Save the Changes
- Place a copy of the modified php.ini file into the "administrator" or other appropriate folder
- Inside cPanel, select the PHP Config icon, enable PHP 5 (FastCGI) and Save Changes
