Support » Fixing WordPress » Function-Session-Start Error

  • Hello,

    I’ve just launched my website ( I had to contact Go-Daddy (my hosts) to change something from a windows set up to Linux in order for me to run Jet Pack.

    Since then, I keep getting this error code on my homepage:

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/home/content/43/11791543/tmp/sess_gqo2ris79op6s7jqmg2m1na8g1, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in /home/content/43/11791543/html/wp-content/themes/newssetter-parent/framework/core/SESSION.php on line 24

    What exactly does it mean, and how do I resolve the problem?

    Thank you for your help

  • It’s looking for a file that does not exist.

    2 things if it was working on the windows server – 1 (most likely) is that the folder that it try’s to write to does not have the correct permissions set. The second thing might be a capitalisation issue, Linux servers are case sensitive.

    check first if /home/content/43/11791543/tmp/ is writtable (you can do this through FTP or your control panel with G-Daddy)

    Hi Lee,

    I’ve just tried to have a look for that file, but I’m not sure where I can find it. I’ve had a look at my control panel on Go-Daddy and found the content folder, but I don’t see a tmp file.

    Where could I find this?

    it’s a folder not a file. Anyway, from content (not wp-content) you should see a folder called 43 in that a folder called 11791543 in that a folder called tmp/ — unless it’s trying to write those folders as it goes. Hard to say from here.

    What’s in /content/?

    Where did you download this theme from?

    I can’t find that folder on my Go-Daddy control pannel, Lee?

    I bought it from Themefuse, Esmi 🙂

    It’s a sister folder of /html/ which is the folder your site is rooted in, you might not be able to get to it through Godaddy.

    contacting the theme dev’s is probably the best move.
