Fatal error: session_start()

Fatal error: session_start()

I have used universal email on other sites with no problems. This is new to me. The php.ini settings are the same as always. But I am receiving this error

Fatal error: session_start() [<a href='plugins/function.session-start'>function.session-start</a>]: Failed to initialize storage module: user (path: )

Is there something I should be looking at or should I share my code with you? Thanks.

the error indicates a problem with the session.save_path in the php.ini file.

make sure that the session.save_path points to a location that actually exists on the server.

So I think what was actually happening is I was including ssi.php from Simple Machines Forums and something in there was messing around with the sessions. So I had to do that form on it's own page to work around this. Just in case anyone else comes across something like this.

Thanks.

Thank you, Joe! I was pulling my hair out with this one and the SSI.php was what was messing everything up.
