Installation issue: The session save path '4;/hermes/phpsessions' is not writable.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,   I'm a newbie, but I've worked with this before some with an earlier version..  Anyway.   I'm trying to install and keep getting this error right away. 

The session save path '4;/hermes/phpsessions' is not writable.

Is there something I can write in the php.ini file to get past it or how do I fix this?

Thanks for the help in advance..

Yes, look in /etc/php.ini and apache configs (usually in /etc/httpd/) for anything that refers to "/hermes/phpsessions". I think there is some strange ASCII symbol that someone mistyped in a config before path. Eg. session.save_path=`/hermes/phpsessions

If you fix the setting don't forget to reload the webserver to apply the change.
