Hi there,

I'm having issues with an install and I get two warnings at the top of the install page;

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_c82b3423311def7aa196203d9e1f7ae1, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/username/public_html/install.php on line 23

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/username/public_html/install.php:23) in /home/username/public_html/install.php on line 23

I'm insalling on an Apache server with latest PHP support, the database and all permissions seem to be ok so i have no idea how to get around these two warnings. This is my second Silverstripe install I've done (on same server) but the last one was about a year ago and I don't recall having any issues like this..

Any suggestions??

Thank you!
