SuiteCRM-7.0.2 installation session.save_path


I try to install SuiteCRM-7.0.2 and i have an error with install.php :

PHP Sessions Configuration Error

But in my php.ini i have /tmp for session.save_path

I don’t understand.

Can you help me ?


Best regards.

Hi Benoit,

Can you provide full details of your setup i.e. Server/PHP versions.



Hi Will,

FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p3
PHP Version 5.3.19
Server API FPM/FastCGI
nginx 1.2.6



I got the same problem as well

My setup:
CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core) CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core) (every update applied)
PHP Version: 5.4.16
nginx: 1.6.2

My PHP.INI says:
session.save_path = “/tmp”

i really don’t know what to do… i am clueless

For anyone who may still come across this issue on new installs…

Some step-by-step guides miss one step regarding the configuration of the PHP Session folder permissions.

In such case, confirm there is an existing folder /var/lib/php/session, otherwise, create it. Then, make sure the appropriate web server engine has permissions on it (e.g., nginx):

sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/php/session
sudo chown -R nginx:nginx /var/lib/php/session

I came across this issue today on the following walk through for SuiteCRM on CentOS 8 with Nginx:
