    Re: Unable to Log In Link to this post

    Reading the error verbatim, your webserver does not have access to the sessions folder in your filesystem. Apache may be running as another user (like apache or www-data) that can't edit your session dir.

    You need to change your permissions on /var/lib/php/session/. Set the permissions of your existing session dir to be

    chmod u=rwx,og=wxt /var/lib/php/session/

    If that doesn't work or can't be done, change the directory PHP stores sessions to something safe like /tmp

    Check your php.ini settings or use this:
    http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.session-save-path.php

    So have a look here and feel better that others are suffering too:

    I finally got past this stage by having the hosting provider zap the entire thing and start from new as a new client. It worked.
