ecart issue

I have gone through every possible solution for the session paths that I can find but I can't find how to fix it. Please help if you know how to solve it.

This is an issue you will need the host to correct.

It's not a scripting issue, you could create a blank php page with only this one line on it:

<?php session_start(); ?>

and it would generate the same error message.

the problem is that the folder referenced by the session.save_path setting in the php.ini folder does not exist. since it does not exist, it cannot start the session.

Since the session cannot be started, simple scripting practices like setting a session on one page:

php:
<?php 

session_start
();
$_SESSION['foo'] = "bar";
?>




then writing the session value on a another page:

php:
<?php

session_start
();
echo(
"Foo = ".isset($_SESSION['foo'])?$_SESSION['foo']:"Not Set"); 
?>



will fail.

I would hope that a hosting company would recognize that when simple code to set sessions cannot be executed, it is not a scripting issue, but a problem on the servers that they need to help you resolve.

the above script example are valid script that will work if the sessions can be saved.

when talking to them, make sure they notice that the first error, and dont concetrate on the other 2.

the first error:

  Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/var/chroot/home/content/56/3901056/tmp/sess_b8qgvfcg9p2vlodovnl8clv1u5, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in /home/content/56/3901056/html/WA_eCart/WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php on line 465  



is the important one.

the other 2 errors:

  Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/56/3901056/html/WA_eCart/WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php:465) in /home/content/56/3901056/html/WA_eCart/WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php on line 465

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/content/56/3901056/html/WA_eCart/WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php:465) in /home/content/56/3901056/html/WA_eCart/WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php on line 465  



are caused by the first one.

Jason thank you for you help, I called Godaddy and they fixed it, the issue was that Godaddy did not create a directory after the grid migration was done. As you said in ALL your other posts, which I read to Godaddy support 3 times during the last 3 weeks. They refused to compensate us for anything which is ridiculous considering it was their error.

Thank you for your wisdom once again!

glad you got it corrected, to be honest i am no fan of GoDaddy for just that reason.
