session error message after server upgrade to php5 (4 posts)

    My server was upgraded to php5 this past weekend, and now I'm getting these warnings at the bottom of my WP pages:

    Warning: Unknown: open(/tmp/sess_f6580bdb02dbb73818d2a7266a8c5aca, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0
    
    Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct () in Unknown on line 0

    This seems to be limited to my theme (other themes are okay), but I don't know where to look for anything to do with sessions. Help please?

    Complain to whoever upgraded your server. WordPress does not use sessions. A theme might, I grant you.

    But a session requires tmp files, and it looks like your server doesn't have permissions set for you to use them.

    I upgraded my server from PHP 4 to 5 and got these same errors, showing up below the footer on my admin screens. In my case, I traced it to the Bad Behavior plugin. Deactivating Bad Behavior removed the errors.

    I'm still checking with my host to see if anything went wrong in the PHP upgrade.
