Support » Fixing WordPress » Warning: session_start…not sure what the issue is?

  • I had to restore my website with my host this afternoon after having some problems, hoping to restore my site like new, unfortunately, it didn’t and now I’m getting error messages on my site that read:

    –At the top of the site–
    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_0577671afe2cfe9f54ac9fd3ef658e09, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/zzz/public_html/manglamour.com/wp-content/plugins/datafeedr/datafeedr.php on line 916

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter – headers already sent (output started at /home/jacobjm1/public_html/manglamour.com/wp-content/plugins/datafeedr/datafeedr.php:916) in /home/zzz/public_html/manglamour.com/wp-content/plugins/datafeedr/datafeedr.php on line 916

    –at the bottom–

    Warning: Unknown: open(/tmp/sess_0577671afe2cfe9f54ac9fd3ef658e09, 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 (/tmp) in Unknown on line 0

    What is causing this problem? How do I fix?

  • Looks like there’s a problem with the datafeedr plugin. Can you log in and disable it? If not you can try to delete that plugin from the plugins directory.

    Deactivating most definitely works, but I need the plug-in. I tried re-installing it and the error message comes back. According to the developer the problem is with the host, but the host hasn’t a clue…

    Out of curiosity, do you get the same error message when switching themes?

    I don’t know much about sessions, but the session.save_path seems to be host related. I found this info, with a possible htaccess workaround http://support.ultimatelocator.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=60

    My host did supposedly add the session.save file and make it writeable, so that removed the error messages I was seeing at the top and bottom of my pages.

    However, when I click the Buy Now button for one of my products, I get this error message:

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_0577671afe2cfe9f54ac9fd3ef658e09, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/zzz/public_html/manglamour.com/wp-content/plugins/datafeedr/datafeedr.php on line 916

    Not sure what to tell the host next?
