Help making session.save_path set to a writable folder

Hi,

I am trying to install ThinkUpApp on my server but it is giving me an error saying:

"The PHP session.save_path directory is not set. Please set it to a writable folder. Here's how to set that folder path and permissions." (I tried reading those help files but was getting lost)



I did some research and I think there is an easy fix and I just need to change something in the php.ini file. I don't PHP at all so would love any kind of 'find & replace and/or add XYZ' kind of instructions.

Other information that might help:
Everything is hosted on godaddy
I did set up a mysql database (I just think I need to connect it).

Please let me know if you need more information or need me to explain my problem differently.

Thank you for your time!

Nico

The "session.save_path" directory is set on Godaddy shared hosting and I don't believe that you can change it.  Do you have a private server?

Thanks Dave.

I just have the middle tier deluxe plan and didn't specifically set up anything private so I don't think I do. http://www.godaddy.com/hosting/web-hosting.aspx?ci=76393

So I guessing this wouldn't work with GoDaddy?

When I click on phpAdmin in GoDaddy it takes me to the site where my database is. Here's a pic of the logo in case you recognize it Starfield Technologies.

Is there any easy to use hosting companies that you recommend that can do this?

Thanks,
Nico

You should not be getting that message on a Godaddy Deluxe plan because the "session.save_path" is already set.  I don't see this as Godaddy problem.  I think that your ThinkUpApp is goofy.  I did notice in their installation instructions that in some cases they think you should have shell level access to the web server.  That is not going to happen on most shared hosting.  If ThinkUp is your reason for getting web hosting, you should ask them where it is actually working.

I do recognize that symbol because I have access to half a dozen Godaddy databases on mine and my clients web sites.  It is not relevant to your error message.  phpMyAdmin would not be working right if "session.save_path" wasn't set.

Thanks Dave! I will reach out to them and see what they use. It's not the only thing I'm using hosting for but big enough to create another account some where else.

I appreciate it!
