I just installed abantecart on my server and when I try to log into the Admin area I type my user and password and click on login and it comes back to the login screen instead of logging me in. Please help

Hi,

I just manually set up a local copy of Abantecart v 1.2.10 on Windows 10 on IIS. PHP version is 7.1.1.

When i accessed admin page, I get this error:  Your server is unable to create a session necessary for AbanteCart functionality. Check logs for exact error details and contact your hosting support administrator to resolve this error.

I went through old posts for the same error but I could not understand those as I guess they are talking about apache server or linux env.

I have OTB setup, so not sure why this is not working. My other php sites work fine.

Appreciate any help, i can get

Thanks.

hi.
We suggests to read about session.save_path directive of your php.ini file.
http://php.net/manual/en/session.configuration.php#ini.session.save-path
Looks like you have incorrect value here or directory for temporary file is non-writable for php

Hi,

I opened php.ini file from C;/windows and removed ';' in front of following statements:
session.save_path = "N;/path"
session.save_path = "N;MODE;/path"
session.save_path = "/tmp"

Then i recycled application pool and restarted the website on IIS. Then I cleared cached data from browser.

Still the issue persists.

===================
Edit: I even tried to set an absolute path: session.save_path = "C:\webhosting\tmp" and created directory with write permission to all. but nothing seems to work. Will really appreciate a resolution.

===================
Edit2: Tested session setup using this code:
<?php
session_start();
$counter = isset($_SESSION['counter']) ? $_SESSION['counter'] : 0;
$counter++;
print "You have visited this page $counter times during this session";
$_SESSION['counter'] = $counter;
?>
It worked fine. But Admin page is still not working. Shall i try to reinstall afresh or there is a good explanation?

As this a IIS specific configuration, can you please create a new thread?
