I'm not a server expert so could be wrong. But at a guess looks like the User set up for your VPS doesn't have read permission to /var/lib/php/session thus the open() fail.
You could try adding something like
session_save_path('my/silverstripe/dir');
to the top of the index.php file in your silverstripe installation. You might be able to get away with it in the mysite/_config.php file but I'm unsure at what point SS starts the session (before or after reading the _config file).
