    Installing CMS Made Simple, need assistance

    Hello everybody,

    I am trying to install CMS Made Simple, and whenever I install it to the htdocs directory, or even a sub directory, i continue to get an error on the install page along the lines of...

    -----------------------------------
    Warning: Unknown: open(/home/users/web/bNNNN/pow.username/htdocs/cgi-bin/tmp/sess_866e9e1bb6cfbdfdc7a0dbf5da61fd7d, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) 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 (/home/users/web/bNNNN/pow.username/htdocs/cgi-bin/tmp) in Unknown on line 0
    ------------------------------------

    The only way to bypass this was if I copied the tmp folder into the cgi-bin folder...

    After I do that to bypass the problem, when the Checksum test comes up, every single one fails, however I can still continue throughout the installation. Once I finish the installation, It allows me to access the login page however I cannot login.



    Now that you know the problems, what am I doing wrong, if anything? Am I installing it incorrectly? They advise to use Shell or cPanel, however I must use FTP.

    If this doesn't work out I'll just go back to Joomla! or Drupal, I just would like to try this CMS out.

    Goto OPS> Main> CGI and Scripted Language Support> PHP Scripting - You will see on the php.ini page something like this:

    /home/users/web/b1234/pow.username/htdocs

    Copy that line from your php.ini page set php5 if you wish and scroll about 2/3 of the way down the php.ini code until you find "session.save_path = " replace "/var/phpsessions" (or session.save_path = "/tmp") with your true path adding phpsessions to the end like this:

    session.save_path = "/home/users/web/b1234/pow.username/phpsessions"

    Click Save and create a phpsessions folder outside of htdocs. Then run your installer.

    Thank you. I was able to complete the installation without error however I still cannot log in. I am just going to head back to Joomla! for a CMS.
