Recently I got a project for installing Joomla and configuring a template provided by the client itself. It was a very simple project and usually takes around half an hour at most. But as the installation process started, I was flooded with the following error messages:
Warning: session_start(): open(sess_78ac9881b78726f2fb5c194667f74021,O_RDWR) failed:No such file or directory (2) in session.php on line 542Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cookie - headers alreadysent by(output started at session.php:412) in session.php on line 542
Also received the following error message:
Cookies do not appear to be enabled on your browser client. You will notbe able to install the application with this feature disabled. Alternatively,there could also be a problem with the server's session.save_path. If thisis the case, please consult your hosting provider if you don't know how tocheck or fix this yourself.
After a bit of research I found an easy solution to fix this problem.
Download this file and place it in the installation directory of Joomla.
Open index.php in the installation directory of Joomla. Add the following lines on top of the file(index.php):
Now initiate the installation process and the problem will disappear.
