    Usually there will not be a default save path, the software will usually give you one or ask you to enter one. Did you try and create that .htaccess file I explained above?

    If not, or if you didn't have any success, try /home/northan1/public_html/session as the path for the session save path where a folder session exists in that directory.

    I tried editing the .htcaccess file with the part you gave me, it just came up with an error page when trying to access the installation part.

    I've also tried just solely putting in the command on it's own, again no joy.

    Out of interest, was the error a 500 Internal Server error or was it something else?

    Most likely the format for the .htaccess file was wrong, or is not supported by UK2 (Very unlikely)

    Create a directory in your northan1 folder called sessions
    Your northan1 folder is the folder that has the public_html in it.

    CHMOD (change permissions) of the sessions folder to 777.

    In your public_html folder create a file named .htaccess (make sure it is only .htaccess and not something like .htaccess.htm) and in it put the following:

    Save the .htaccess file.

    Refresh the Joomla installer page.

    --

    You should find the Joomla installer picks it up. You will also find your phpinfo check.php file has session.save_path of the above path.

    At any point I use that piece of script, where ever i put it, it causes a Internal Server Error

    It not only stops the Joomla installation page, it also stops the check.php page.

    Okay! We're there.
    Just wanna say a big thanks to everyone that posted and helped me yesterday.

    The problem with it was that the php_value and php_flag commands are not supported by my hosting (for reasons I am unsure of but shall contact them).

    So in order to bypass it open your global.php
    and put
    ini_set('session.save_path', '/location/of/tmp/folder/');

    into the file.

    It seemed to fix it straight away, a big thank you to ZeroHour for his time on Wednesday morning, very much appreciated mate.

    How can I donate to edugeek?


    Thanks again
    Steve

    Well done on getting it sorted.

    php_value in .htaccess, ini_set() and session_save_path() are three different ways of doing the same thing; I am actually very surprised that UK2 don't allow the php_value keywords in .htaccess.

    Best Regards,

  12. Thanks to DarkLight from:

    for further info - I had this same error in trying to install on a CLEO/Lancs school webserver - I created the .htaccess file and put
    Code:
    php_value session.save_path /tmp
    into it and the error status went away
