Is it something to do with this:

 

Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/home/users/web/b109/ipg.removalspacecom/cgi-bin/tmp) in Unknown on line 0

 

How would i fully check this is correct? cpanel somewhere?

From php.net:

 

If while testing locally on your Windows machine you get many warnigns like:

 

Warning: session_start()... failed: No such file or directory

Warning: session_start()...: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent

etc.

 

you need to configure properly the session.save_path in your php.ini file.

 

Set session.save_path to an existing folder on your PC.

For example: session.save_path="C:\Temp";

[session]

; Handler used to store/retrieve data.

session.save_handler = files

 

; Argument passed to save_handler.  In the case of files, this is the path

;

; As of PHP 4.0.1, you can define the path as:

;

; where N is an integer.  Instead of storing all the session files in

;

; NOTE 1: PHP will not create this directory structure automatically.

You need to make sure that the line in your php.ini file:

 

session.save_path = "C:\Temp"

 

actually gives a path name of an existing directory. Also make sure there isn't a semicolon before it, as this would comment it out. The default installation of php.ini shouldn't be commented out, though there are some other lines that look similar that should be commented out. (i.e. skip the ones that say session.save_path = "N; /path"  and  session.save_path = "N;MODE; /path" etc.

That was just a defualt .ini uploaded....

 

mines this:

 

session.save_path = /home/users/web/b109/ipg.removalspacecom/cgi-bin/tmp

 

 

on my server, this should in theory work shouldnt it, meaning that the problem is elswhere? is that true??

if i create a new folder on my file manager called 'sessions' and the path to that is: /sessions

 

and i change the session.save_path to:

 

session.save_path = /sessions

 

 

Will it work without it crashing/messing up? just checking before i try it?

right okay so ive changed it to:

 

session.save_path = "removalspacecom.ipagemysql.com/sessions"

 

I get this:
