    Manual Joomla install

    I tried Install Central and that failed (as usual) So I am doing a manual install.

    I receive the following errors:

    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(/home/users/web/b2877/pow.mtbeautiful/htdocs/sessions/sess_d79759ccbaf58fcb300fff792bc3842f, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in /hermes/web05b/b2877/pow.mtbeautiful/htdocs/libraries/joomla/session/session.php on line 423
    Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /hermes/web05b/b2877/pow.mtbeautiful/htdocs/libraries/joomla/session/session.php:423) in /hermes/web05b/b2877/pow.mtbeautiful/htdocs/libraries/joomla/session/session.php on line 423
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /hermes/web05b/b2877/pow.mtbeautiful/htdocs/libraries/joomla/session/session.php:423) in /hermes/web05b/b2877/pow.mtbeautiful/htdocs/libraries/joomla/session/session.php on line 426
    AND I Also get this on the Joomla Installer:

    An error has occurred.:

    Cookies do not appear to be enabled on your browser client. You will not be able to install the application with this feature disabled. Alternatively, there could also be a problem with the server's session.save_path. If this is the case, please consult your hosting provider if you don't know how to check or fix this yourself.

    I changed my PHP5 to /username/sessions No difference

    I also changed the PHP from 5 to 4 and the erros go away - but I still get the Session.save_path fail on the Joomla installer.

    FYI - I already changed my memory to 64Megs.

    any help please.

    That file is 700 and the group owner is not right. I suspect that joomla doesn't have enough permissions to access that file.
