Hi there,

It sounds like you are missing files. Could you check the entire downloaded package was unarchived correctly?

I've been getting this too...with the latest download of SS. Is there a known bug or is this something easily fixed?

I received this error too and resolved the issue by removing the install.php file from the www folder. I am using symbolic links though. I am not sure if this is an issue if your website isn't using symbolic links. (1/11)

I moved a website on Dreamhost from one user account to another and encountered this error. I did a dev/rebuild and it corrected the error. (1/12)

it is worth noting that this can also be caused by lack of disk space so the logger can't write as normal.

We are experiencing this issue as well. We are on dreamhost. I note they use symlinks for the log files. I turned off XCache and thought that sovled it, however I note the problem has come back. Sometimes there, sometimes not. Very frustrating.

Don't know what SS tries to log. Will rip it out of the code to solve it, if only there was documentation about logging!

Pretty old thread, I know, but I just stumbled upon this problem this morning and adding


to _config.php fixed it for me. Just spreading the word.

Found it here: [url][/url].

session_save_path() should save into the system temp folder by default, is your fix of setting it to getTempFolder() to work around permission problems with a shared host?
