    I'm trying to install trunk589, and get the following error:
    "The PHP session.save_path variable is not set in your php.ini file. Please contact your webhost on how to set this system variable."

    In the php.ini file I put
    session.save_path = "/tmp"

    But no luck.

    What am I doing wrong, is it where I put the php.ini file, or the path syntax?

    Some info:

    When logging thru ftp client I have
    root > where among other folders, and files I have the public_html folder
    I've put the php.ini in the root, and plogger here

    I also tried putting the php.ini in all plogger folders, but no luck

    Thank you

    session.save_path = "/tmp"
    Do you have access to save sessions in this folder?

    Excuse my ignorance, I'm a beginner, what do you mean by having access to "this folder"? Do you mean the tmp?
    If yes I can open it, and upload/download from it, is that what you mean by access?

    Thank you, and sorry for the delay in responding, I opened the thread, then went home.

    Mionick -

    To fix this quickly, open plog-globals.php and add the following line right before line 22:
    Change /path/to/tmp/ to the correct path for your server, i.e. /home/accountusername/tmp/. You can find the correct path to that folder by opening your FTP program, connecting to your webserver, and navigate to the existing /tmp/ folder (should be at the same level as /public_html/). The address bar in your FTP program should show you the proper path.

    Once you've got the correct path in that line in plog-globals.php, save and upload the file to your webserver, overwriting the existing file.
