You have to set the session.save_path to a path on your machine that PHP can
write session files to. You can make a temp folder in your C: drive and then
set the path to c:/temp or c:\\temp or create and set it to any other folder
you want. Make sure (if you're using NTFS) that user IUSR_<computer_name>
has permission to read/write to the directory you specify.

Subject: [PHP] session.save_path

Hi all,

I'm trying to install php/apache with phptriad. This worked fine,
however when I'm using session variables the thing goes nuts:

Warning: open(/tmp\sess_d22b57336449f89ad54b974794dd53f4, O_RDWR) failed: m
(2) in C:\apache\htdocs\dm\wwwtest\phpincludes\session\session.php on line 2

Warning: open(/tmp\sess_d22b57336449f89ad54b974794dd53f4, O_RDWR) failed: m
(2) in Unknown on line 0

Warning: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the
current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in Unknown on line 0

This is how my phpinfo() sees it:

     files files
     /tmp /tmp
     php php
     On On

Does anybody have any idea what to do. Should I adjust php.ini?? And where
should this directory "/tmp " be located?? cause it's not on my harddisk-->
so this might be the error. (i'm on winXP BTW)

well, thx for all info!

regards Wilbert
