Quick tip 1: Session save path Unwriteable (tested with joomla 1.0.x)

One of the problems people often come up to while installing joomla is Session save path Unwriteable error.

In this quick tip you’ll learn how to solve this problem.

Of course , the first thing you need to do is to contact technical support and a webmaster of your server, and to see if he can ( wants to ) help.

If this doesn’t work, install joomla regardless to this error , and in a folder containing configuration.php create new folder , for example temp_folder.
Set it’s CHMOD so it is allowed to write in it.
From configuration.php copy the value of $mosConfig_absolute_path entry ( without quotes ) , and then add a new line to this file:


and between quotes in bracets write copied value + /temp_folder

for example, if in configuration.php says:

$mosConfig_absolute_path = '/home/virtual/site76/fst/var/www/html';

Then, we will add a line:


save changes. Now try to login to joomla.
Good luck!
