Best iPage web host provider for Macs?

Click Here To View All Answers...


Got a question... Best iPage web host provider for Macs? Many thanks for any answer or 2. 2nd question I got is.. Warning: The sessions directory does not exist: /tmp. Sessions will not work until this directory is created..

And it was all working so well up until an hour ago. I sat to see something quickly, and that error came up. I checked, and a tmp directory does exist. Apparently the iPage hosting company upgraded something earlier today, and after that I get this error..

So, in order to fix this warning, what do I have to do? Is there a particular place that I need to place this tmp folder at, or what are permissions supposed to be?.

Is this all even nececerary? Or can I just turn this warning off by commenting it out? What is this tmp directory for?.

Thanks in advance!.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

Comment #1

In your admin/configuration/sessions you need to set the path to match what you have in your document root area, as well as the path which needs to be set in the logging menu..

OsCommerce comes with these generic, as every server is different...

I believe with your attitude you will be there before you know it!!!!! You're doing great!..

Comment #3

It would be best to store the sessions in MySQL instead of on the filesystem...

Comment #4

CONGRATS! I lost my first week and have now lost 27 and am starting WK 6. Yes you can do this!..

Comment #5

Is there a simple way of doing that?.

Ok, so I go to admin/configuration/sessions, and set the session directory to /tmp.

Exactly how it was earlier when everything worked. Yet on the cart I still get that error. Is there something that I am doing wrong here?.

Thanks for all the help!.

I meant I lost 7 my first week as well......

Comment #7

Well damn the simplicity of this silly thing. Instead of /tmp in admin/configuration/sessions, all it needed to be was just plain tmp.

So, is there an advantage of using MySQL over just file based sessions? And for a silly 'ol n00b like me.

, how hard is it to do?.

Thanks!.

Woo hoo! I am on day 5 and have been 100% OP that whole time. I'm right on your heels and I know i'll be great!..

Comment #9

Edit your (catalog/admin)/includes/configure.php files and the last file should be changed from:.

 define('STORE_SESSIONS', ''); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'.

To be like:.

 define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'.

And that should do it...
