This is my second installation of the WP Simple PayPal Shopping Cart and for some reason, this installation didn’t go as smoothly as the first.
Now on every page I’m getting the following errors appended to every blog page in my site:
PHP Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(Webssparqu000adataphpsessionsess_avll5k09r7s6ieqvvhu0uc2hm3, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in webssparqu000awp-contentpluginswordpress-simple-paypal-shopping-cartwp_shopping_cart.php on line 22 PHP Warning: Unknown: open(Webssparqu000adataphpsessionsess_avll5k09r7s6ieqvvhu0uc2hm3, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0 PHP Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (Webssparqu000adataphpsession) in Unknown on line 0
Can somebody please help me figure out what I need to do to resolve this? I’m not a PHP whiz but it looks like it may be some sort of permissions issue with a file or directory on my server (?).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.November 10, 2009 at 5:04 am #15893amin007Participant
@EfremJ, This is because the PHP session isn’t working on this domain. Please speak to your hosting provider and make sure your PHP session is working before trying the shopping cart plugin.May 11, 2010 at 4:19 pm #15894
Thanks for getting back with me so quickly on this. I’m running this on an IIS server–do you know of anything special I need to configure or ask my host provider about?May 12, 2010 at 12:37 am #15895amin007Participant
You just need to tell your hosting provider that PHP session is not working on your server and they should know what to do. It’s usually a matter of creating a temporary directory in your server then specifying that directory path in the PHP’s configuration file to use for storing session data.May 12, 2010 at 5:22 pm #15896
OK. Thanks again for the follow up. Now that I’m done with finals I can focus on this more attentively. ;-}~May 12, 2010 at 6:25 pm #15897
OK, so I spoke with my host provider and we verified that all of the IIS mappings are the same on both sites. The only “red flag” that stuck out for us is that the plugin works on the Parent site, but not the child site (Windows IIS latest version). Don’t know if that helps any but what I’m thinking is that my php.ini file isn’t pointing to the right storage directory.
Again, it’s working fine on the parent site and my child site pretty much duplicates that environment (except for the application paths, of course).May 13, 2010 at 5:58 pm #15898
I changed my session.save_path in my php.ini file and re-activated the plugin. The errors went away and everything is working fine.
The hosting provider must have changed something on the server which messed it up in the first place. Sorry to give you trouble for something that is not your fault.
