My first question is Please help me find a free iPage web host? Thanks for any answer or 2. Another question... Session Storage Folder?.

When I leave the site, I have to log back in. I also noted that no files are stored in the sessions folder at anytime for any user..

My session storage folder is located at:.

Http://www.popthetop...atalog/sessions.

I have it set in the Admin as:.

/sessions.

I have the permissions set to:.

777.

I also have it set to store sessions as files in the Admin..

Am I doing somthing wrong here and is the folder location for the sessions dir correct?..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Comment #1

I am trying out /home/popthet/public_html/catalog/sessions/.

I have /home/popthet/public_html/catalog/cache/ set as my Cache folder and it works for the cache. I will let you know about the sessions folder...

Comment #2

Well, that does not seem to work either. Hmmm..

Comment #3

Good I am glad it didnt work, those session and cache files dont belong in a 'public_html' directory..

Hint! Hint!.

/home/popthet/tmp/.

Check your config files!!!!!!!!!!!.

Last resort:.

Ask your iPage hosting company 'Why cant I do it?'..

Maybe they have some lessons or somthing......

Comment #4

I can do it, I just like to keep all files in the same folders as the scripts. Forums in the forums folder, store in the store folder and so on..

I CHMOD'd the tmp folder to 777.

I have it set as: /home/popthet/tmp/.

This is the problem I am having....

I can log on, but when I close the browser and come back, I have to log back on again. I want to be able to STAY logged in..

Here are my Session settings in Admin:.

Session Directory: /home/popthet/tmp/  .

Force Cookie Use: False  .

Check SSL Session ID: True  .

Check User Agent: False  .

Check IP Address: False  .

Prevent Spider Sessions: True  .

Recreate Session: True.

Here are my Cookie settings in configure.php:.

// Define the webserver and path parameters.

// * DIR_FS_* = Filesystem directories (local/physical).

// * DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL).

 define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.popthetop.com');.

 define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.popthetop.com');.

 define('ENABLE_SSL', true);.

 define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.popthetop.com');.

 define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.popthetop.com');.

 define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog');.

 define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/catalog');.

 define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/catalog/');.

 define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/catalog/');.

 define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');.

 define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES'icons/');.

 define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');.

 define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'boxes/');.

 define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'functions/');.

 define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'classes/');.

 define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'modules/');.

 define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES'languages/');.

 define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', 'pub/');.

 define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/popthet/public_html/catalog/');.

 define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG'download/');.

 define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_FS_CATALOG'pub/');.

Any ideas?..

I think you need the full path. Check Admin ->Server Info for DOCUMENT_ROOT.

Usually you would put the temp dir below document root like so..

DOCUMENT_ROOT /home/mydomainname/html/.

SESSION_DIR /home/mydomainname/tmp/.

But if you want you can do something like this..

SESSION_DIR /home/mydomainname/html/catalog/admin/sessions/.

CACHE_DIR /home/mydomainname/html/catalog/admin/cache/..
