Hello!

I'm trying to install SilverStripe on my Webspace. When I'm opening the install.php, the following errors appear:
Warning: session_start(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/tmp) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/www/xxx/html:/home/www/xxx/phptmp:/home/www/xxx/files:/home/www/xxx/atd:/srv/www/htdocs/xxx/html:/srv/www/htdocs/xxx/phptmp:/srv/www/htdocs/xxx/files:/home/www/xxx/atd) in /home/www/xxx/html/SilverStripe/install.php on line 10 Fatal error: session_start(): Failed to initialize storage module: files (path: ) in /home/www/xxx/html/SilverStripe/install.php on line 10

Can someone help me?

Bye,

Strange. What version of PHP do you have? There are some reports on a bug in PHP that has this behavior, but if you are on a webhost, there should be no problems with session_start() as it is probably used by almost all PHP scripts.

Do you have a phpinfo file (a xxx.php file with only <? phpinfo(); ?> in it) on that server, that can be checked?

Just to make sure your server is setup ok, can you just create a phpfile with this:

<?
error_reporting(E_ALL);
session_start();
echo session_save_path();
?>

Hopefully you can edit your virtual host directives and add the path it's looking for. If not, i think you need to talk to your hosting provider. Open basedir restrictions are nasty.
