Installation problem: Dataface was unable to create the dir

Hi,
Like in another thread I get the following error:

================
Configuration Required

Dataface was unable to create the directory '/bib/session/473f1fdde21cb2f5008b4a10d2d858e6' to store its session files.

Possible reasons for this:

The script does not have permission to create the directory.
The server is operating in safe mode.
Possible Solutions for this:

Make the /bib/session writable by the web server. E.g. chmod 0777 /bib/session.
Manually create the '/bib/session/473f1fdde21cb2f5008b4a10d2d858e6' directory and make it writable by the web server.
Change the session save path to a directory to which you have write permissions by adding the following to the beginning of your application's index.php file:
session_save_path('/path/to/dir');
If none of these solves the problem, visit the Dataface forum at http://fas.sfu.ca/dataface/forum and ask for help.
Debugging Information:

On line 683 of file /var/www/vhosts/yyy.nl/httpdocs/bib/dataface/Dataface/Application.php in function printStackTrace()
On line 1411 of file /var/www/vhosts/yyy.nl/httpdocs/bib/dataface/Dataface/Application.php in function startSession()
On line 30 of file /var/www/vhosts/yyy.nl/httpdocs/bib/index.php in function display()
================

Safe mode is off.

And I already tried to make the /bib/session writable by the web server. I also tried to manually create the '/bib/session/473f1fdde21cb2f5008b4a10d2d858e6' directory and make it writable by the web server. As well as, to change the session save path to a directory to which I have write permissions by adding a relevant session_save_path(' ... '); to the beginning of index.php.

Still the error remains. Any ideas?

Gert

It looks like the problem has to be to do with your session directory not being writable. Are you sure you made the '/bib/session' directory writable and not the 'bib/session' directory?[/i]

Solved

I solved the problem :D by including

session_save_path('session');

in the index.php file.
