Strange Error

posts: 1

I'm trying to install tiki locally on my localhost machine so I can practise with it in order to learn how to customize it better. I have successfully installed apache, php, and mysql and have tested all. I am using Windows XP.

After setting up my tiki database in MySQL, I tried to open the tiki-install.php page in order to install tiki, but I'm getting this unusual error:
Warning: session_start(): open(/tmp\sess_03c51eb88c9bbdb37f98179cf17c88da, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\hispanic_profiles\hispanic_profiles\tiki\tiki-install.php on line 3

Any help or insights are greatly appreciated.

Sure you have a /tmp dir on your C: drive?

Try changing temp dir to a valid path here on the general admin page:


enter c:\\temp (double backslash!)

then create this directory:

mkdir c:\temp

Then try again. :-)
