cannot start session without errors :(

cannot start session without errors, please check errors given in your php and/or webserver log file and configure your php installation properly.

Sigh I have looked around to find an answer to this but am still a little clueless. I need laymans terms to get this reworking again. I can still access my webpage that I created though but I can`t add new databases using xampp/MySql.

Part of my C\:xampp\php\php.ini

Code: Select all
; Handler used to store/retrieve data.
session.save_handler = files

; Argument passed to save_handler.  In the case of files, this is the path
; where data files are stored. Note: Windows users have to change this
; variable in order to use PHP's session functions.
; The path can be defined as:
;     session.save_path = "N;/tmp"
; where N is an integer.  Instead of storing all the session files in
; /path, what this will do is use subdirectories N-levels deep, and
; store the session data in those directories.  This is useful if you
; or your OS have problems with lots of files in one directory, and is
; a more efficient layout for servers that handle lots of sessions.
; NOTE 1: PHP will not create this directory structure automatically.
;         You can use the script in the ext/session dir for that purpose.
; NOTE 2: See the section on garbage collection below if you choose to
;         use subdirectories for session storage
; The file storage module creates files using mode 600 by default.
; You can change that by using
;     session.save_path = "N;/tmp"
; where MODE is the octal representation of the mode. Note that this
; does not overwrite the process's umask.
session.save_path = "C:\xampp\tmp"

; Whether to use cookies.
session.use_cookies = 1

;session.cookie_secure =

; This option forces PHP to fetch and use a cookie for storing and maintaining
; the session id. We encourage this operation as it's very helpful in combatting
; session hijacking when not specifying and managing your own session id. It is
; not the end all be all of session hijacking defense, but it's a good start.
session.use_only_cookies = 0

; Name of the session (used as cookie name).

; Initialize session on request startup.

What flavor of XAMPP are you having issues with?

If Windows then the best place to post your message is in the English XAMPP For Windows Forum:

Please also provide as much detail as possible about your issues so troubleshooting can be quicker and easier to find a solution - remembering that we can't possible know what you see on your screen or what you are doing or trying to do.

Good luck and best wishes for 2011
