I have installed SS before using wamp server but I am having difficulties installing it on a new laptop using the Windows installer.

PHP MySQL and Silverstripe appear to install successfully but going to http://localhost/silverstripe/ gives me this error.

[Warning] session_start() [function.session-start]: open(C:\WINDOWS\\Temp\sess_lcgsebb49reqnlotug4qt5k1q3, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13)
GET /silverstripe/index.php

Line 197 in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\silverstripe\sapphire\core\Session.php


188       Session::set("FormInfo.$formname.message", $message);
189       Session::set("FormInfo.$formname.type", $type);
190    }
192    public static function start() {
193       self::load_config();
195       if(!session_id() && !headers_sent()) {
196          session_set_cookie_params(self::$timeout, Director::baseURL());
197          session_start();
198       }
199    }
201    /**
202     * Use the Session::$session_ips array to set timeouts based on IP address or IP address
203     * range.


* session_start()
Line 197 of Session.php
* Session::start()
Line 66 of main.php
* require_once(C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\silverstripe\sapphire\main.php)
Line 71 of index.php

Any help or pointers would be appreciated.

I have got pretty much the same problem and I am also trying to install on a laptop using the windows installer only in my case my install.php refuses to run due to the same permission error "Permission denied (13)".

After much research and reloading I gave up and used the WAMP server to install Silverstripe with no problems.

I ended up doing the same thing after I found it that IIS 5.1 borks url rewriting which was a dealbreaker for me. I installed xampp and will forget about windows servers for Silverstripe.
