wrong complaint about session.save_path
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: dbu

the installation of 1.10.0rc2 (sorry, no version tag available) failed with

"Your session save path appears to be invalid or is not writable." [...]

commented out lines 409-415 and installation (and login etc.) worked fine.
i guess there is something wrong with the test. it might be related to the ACL
issues discussed at

PHP Version 5.2.2 with safe_mode off.
Server API Apache 2.0 Handler.

Version: 1.10.x
Severity: normal
OS: Linux

I suppose the test ought to be made more advisory in that instance, or perhaps
we need to explicitly test that sessions work.

I discussed with my server admin. The point is: /tmp is not writable, but /tmp/
is. But probably the best thing to do (if possible) would be to create a session
and test whether it works or not.
