I'm trying to set up the MRBS room booking system on a (windows server 2003)  apache server running php and mysql. I'm getting the blue menu screen OK and appear to be able to log on using administrator or user a or b. (internal authentication).

However, I'm getting the following errors:

Warning: session_start(): open(/tmp\sess_68cb215e2946cd7689929aa97e89262d, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\mrbs\session_php.inc on line 26

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\mrbs\session_php.inc:26) in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\mrbs\session_php.inc on line 26

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\mrbs\session_php.inc:26) in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\mrbs\session_php.inc on line 26

I obviously don't have something set up right! The /tmp directory does exist. Can anyone point me to where I'm going wrong please?

The path is a UNIX path.

Use ...

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

and examine this for the location of your PHP.INI file. I suspect it will be in your windows directory called php.ini, but may be php-isapi.ini or php-cgi.ini.

Edit  the file and change

session.save_path = /tmp

to, maybe ...

session.save_path = C:\PHP_Sessions


Create C:\PHP_Sessions and restart Apache.

Then re-run the <?php phpinfo(); ?> script to confirm that the change has been made.

THEN. re run your script.

Thanks 'R'

You got it in one!

For some reason there is a php.ini file both in C:\windows and in c:\php-4.3.3-win32.

Changing the latter one cured the problem.

Thanks
