FS#2092 - Notice: session_start(): ps_files_cleanup_dir: opendir(/tmp) failed

i know, this “bug” was reportet some time ago and you decide, not to fix it, because you sayed this is not a error.

But PLEASE THINK ABOUT Managed-Server or shared-hosting Environments.

If the Admin of this systems decided NOT to make it writeable there is no chance for you to change this.

Maybe you can add a config-value, where this directory could be. for example:


it is no problem for me to make this path writeable (because this is INSIDE my web). But is is absolutely not possible for me to make /tmp

Additional comments about closing:  

server config problem, not a job for flyspray.

Project Manager

Could you please reference the 'old' tasks in which it was discussed/decided?

So the current devs can review the arguments and decision.

Project Manager

could you post output of phpinfo, at least session configuration section?
Or scan the output for '/tmp'.

Maybe similiar issue? :

At a first look it seems a problem of php(php.ini) configuration issue for the shared hosting customers.

i talked (phoned) with my ISP and you are right.

they told me (and i can see this with phpinfo();) that the session.save_path is set to /tmp and that this is NO PROBLEM in 99% of the scripts because they let php manage the session-files. In this case everything works fine.

BUT in 1% the script itself wants to manage the session-files and this crashes. i now created a new php.ini (my ISP alows meto do this) and changed the session.save_path to a path i can access.

now let's see what hapens tomorrow. do i have to remove the old session-files by my onw (cron) or does flyspray handle this for me?

i tell you!
