Error message in installation
« on: January 29, 2009, 03:31:04 PM »
Hello,

The install page for SMF 2.0b4 has the following errors printed at the bottom:

Warning: Unknown: open(/tmp/sess_d7fb4737304dc3f0fb7b4b69b75d5a20, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) 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 () in Unknown on line 0

It doesn't seem to be hindering the installation process, but I haven't trying installing it completely get. How can I fix this?

Thanks,
Chironex

I went ahead and installed the forum. So far, it has gone off without a hitch.

Welcome to SMF.

The error was caused by PHP not having access to the session directory. Once SMF is installed you shouldn't encounter any similar problems, as by default it will use the DB for sessions instead of files

Alright, now I'm having a different problem. Upon clicking "register", this happens:

An Error Has Occurred!
Wrong value type sent to the database. Array of integers expected.

Here are some more details:

Type of error: Critical
hxxp:chironex.f-snet.com/forum/index.php?action=register [nonactive]
Wrong value type sent to the database. Array of integers expected.
Function: create_control_verification
File: /home/ch1r0nex/public_html/forum/Sources/Subs-Editor.php
Line: 1583

It must have something to do with the Captchas. Help...

NVM, fixed it. Sorry for the bother.

FIX: Number of verification questions to answer was set to "1", but there were no questions. Changed it to "0", now it all works.
