Session save path : Unwriteable


Find the file php.ini, this is located in the same director as the installation of PHP

Open the file in a text editor and find session.savepath, this will look like :


We need to make this directory writable C:\DOCUME~1\username\LOCALS~1\Temp\php\session.

On Linux Systems the php.ini will probably use /tmp folder.
If you do not want to make the whole folder writable you can change the php.ini setting to
e. g. /tmp/joomla
and creating that new folder by typing (as root)
mkdir -m 777 /tmp/joomla
