PHP Errors WordPress


I just restored the website from a backup file from Backupbuddy. Now I am seeing PHP errors all over each page:

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/tmp/sess_92d979a32b677b4035cae2577ff2b44a, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/altamaha/public_html/wp-content/plugins/eshop/eshop.php on line 49

Warning: Unknown: open(/tmp/sess_92d979a32b677b4035cae2577ff2b44a, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0

Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in Unknown on line 0

I have tried changing file permissions in the eshop plugin files, but that didn't seem to help. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

Arnav Joy answers:

your temp directory is not writeable , ask your server provider to make it writable.

please check this link

Arnav Joy comments:

change the seesion_save.path directive in php.ini to a directory that actually exists, and give the apache user read/write permissions to it.

Anne Shenton comments:

Are you referring to the tmp folder in the root directory of the site? I have set the permissions to be writable but no change:

Anne Shenton comments:

I'm not sure what you mean by your second comment. Where can I find those files/directories?

Arnav Joy comments:

ask your hosting provider , it is one of the folder in your file system

Anne Shenton comments:

I inquired with the host, and they fixed the problem. Thanks as always Arnav!


Remy answers:

Did you change your hosting provider ? Did you try deactivating/reactivating the plugin ?

Anne Shenton comments:

I am using the same hosting provider but restored to a new database. I just tried deactivating/reactivating the plugin and no change.
