Most likely they haven't pointed it to the right place (or maybe
permissions?  Doubt it would give this error for that).

Session information is usually stored in /tmp on the hosting server (and on
unix servers /tmp is actually a disk partition with a set size).

There are a lot of applications on a hosting server that might use /tmp to
store temporary files, so I suppose it is possible that something has filled
/tmp up and PHP simply can't write to it because there is no where to write

Call your host is my advice.

Subject: [PHP] Session problems: "Warning: write failed: Disk quota

> Hi,
