Hi,


I have serious problem I've been trying to fix for last 3 days, I changed vps hosting provider (from 1and1.co.uk to daily.co.uk) and since then I can't login to my website, I discovered that there's some problems with sessions, that's what I got in error_log file (last entries):

[Fri Feb 25 10:39:52 2011] [client 92.27.74.248] PHP Warning: Unknown: open(/var/lib/php/session/sess_mo6uujpmltr0140p26bkoa7a66, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0, referer: http://vvps-751225.dailyvps.co.uk/page1.php

[Fri Feb 25 10:39:52 2011] [client 92.27.74.248] PHP Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/lib/php/session) in Unknown on line 0, referer: http://vvps-751225.dailyvps.co.uk/page1.php

And here you can get all the information (about sessions too if you scroll down):

Please help.

Check the ownership and permissions on /var/lib/php and /var/lib/php/session

Thanks for that. I fixed the problem and that's what I've done:
1. I displayed all php info:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Open in new window

2. I found in this info path to php.ini on my server
3. Downloaded php.ini and edited, I changed the following lines (I give proper configuration below, after change):
register_globals = on
session.save_path = "/tmp"

Open in new window
