    If I comment out the session_set_save_handler() section of session.php then
    I can log in and use the site. Have tried reworking that as a

What error do you get? I tried loading the site but it shows up fine.
In general, you should post the error message in your email anyway, for two 
1) Most people on this list don't bother to open a (terrible slow) website.
2) Archives, so if anyone after you comes up with the same problem, he will be

Been working on this most of the morning without success :(
Faulty version is back up, and showing all the error messages, but basically ...

ERROR 2: session_regenerate_id(): Session object destruction failed
0 Error occurred on in function session_regenerate_id
But I think it's the initial session write that is failing

ERROR 2: session_write_close(): Failed to write session data (user). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/lib/php5)
0 Error occurred on in function session_write_close

But it should be writing to the database not the file directory.
