session_start() not working over SSL

I get the following error in my php_errors.log file when accessing a file that uses session_start() over ssl:

[19-Sep-2011 21:52:58] PHP Warning:  session_start(): open(C:\Windows\TEMP\\sess_ihq9ssb4n051vv5cg5rcbt39f3, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in \\the\path\to\the\file\public_html\index.php on line 2

(obviously it has the actual path though)

It works fine over regular http, just not https. Files that don't start a session pull up fine over ssl. This is on IIS7 on Windows Server 2008.

You need read/write permission on the 'session_save' directory.  Look in 'php.ini' and see if "C:\Windows\TEMP\" is the correct directory.  Don't know why SSL would change that though.

I had tried giving everyone full access to C:\Windows\TEMP but that didn't work either.

When I looked at the problem the next day it was fixed, so I'm not sure what solved the problem.
