Installation error: Vagrant Scotchbox on Win 10; "Warning Session Start ..."

Post by kranai » Tue Nov 19, 2019 6:27 pm

H

I am trying to install Joomla via vagrant/scotchbox using my windows 10 machine. When I loaded the installation page at 192.168.33.10 (localhost) I immediately got the following warning

Warning: session_start(): open(/var/lib/php/sessions/sess_7vtnum6q7emoepmhn5mnc2d545, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /var/www/public/joomla/libraries/joomla/session/handler/native.php on line 260

I fill in the details in the configuration page and when I press next to setup the database it keeps showing my the above warning message. It doesn't allow me to go to the database setup page.

Can any one please let me know what I need to do to proceed to get joomla installed. Please provide steps as I am new to joomla.

Make the folder writable on the server.

Hi

Thanks for your prompt reply. I have set all the permission for all folders from the top (public/joomla/libraries/joomla/session/handler/) right up to folder handler to have all 3 levels (user,group all) as drwxrwxrwx and also set the 3 following 3 files in handler to -rw-rw-rw

handler.php
joomla.php
interface.php

Did a vagrant reload --provision and still I get the same warning message
Warning: session_start(): open(/var/lib/php/sessions/sess_fcoqrbe2jl88ljr3q2g7smc7u1, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /var/www/public/joomla/libraries/joomla/session/handler/native.php on line 260

Pls advise?

Have you made /var/lib/php/sessions/ writable?

Hi

yes the directory /var/lib/php/sessions is writeable (drwxrwxrwx-). But directory content is empty.

I am still getting this error and unable to install joomla!

Any help on how to get rid of the error mentioned on the subject title??
