I recently moved the temp directory that my php install uses. I tried updating the to the new temp directory and then got a "session cannot start..." error when trying to access my phpmyadmin. I added write permissions on the general user account; which was present on the old temp folder.

    Might be easier/faster to just reinstall it?

    In the Unix environment, you need to change php.ini to reflect the new session.save_path sounds like a file from one of your PHP applications, not the actual PHP installation config.  See if you can find the php.ini and look for the variable above.

    It was the php.ini. The session.save_path need to be updated
