  • problems installing modx on a new server (i have root privileges I think)

    This error occurs when I try to run the modx install:

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_683cd26a082457f5eac552558398cc2b, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/bigfat/public_html/install/index.php on line 10

    • The problem is the PHP process does not have sufficient permissions on your system to write to the /tmp/ directory, which is configured as the PHP session_save_path location. Solve this and you’ll be able to run PHP applications that depend on PHP’s default session handling.

        Thankyou. I had the same problem. The first line was continually refreshing with some kind of new session id.

        After reading what you said, I went to my webhost administration (vdeck) and uncommented "session.save_path = "/tmp"" . Problem solved.

        Incidentally , I did switch to php5 aswell.
