Session start - no such file

Issue Summary

Troubleshooting Questions

Only for this site


So I made a copy of a wordpress website to local host.

All is working finally except when I go to the website and the image attached shows on top.

Basically it says:

Warning: session_start(): open(/var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php73\sess_fc3543585c1da50b97272ff08b71c725, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in C:\Users\ricar\Local Sites\localazana\app\public\wp-content\themes\azana-child\header.php on line 11

Warning: session_start(): Failed to read session data: files (path: /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php73) in C:\Users\ricar\Local Sites\localazana\app\public\wp-content\themes\azana-child\header.php on line 11

I went searching and for what I understood might be some problem with the php.ini file that I might have to change the session.save_path. Now it’s session.save_path = “/var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php73”

But I have no idea what it should be changed for and why this is happening and I did more migrations before and this never happened.

Any idea and help would be much appreciated

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
