I just installed and activated the Event Espresso Light plugin on our wordpress site. Without having done anything, when I preview our new site with the plug in activated, there are a series of error messages above the site header: Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: open(moderated/tmp/sess_3sdutv3fcfro2juqveggugpkr7, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in /home/content/11/6401911/html/wp-content/plugins/event-espresso-free/espresso.php on line 54″ I have zero idea of what to make of this. All I know is that we can’t trial this plugin as long as our website is tagged with a bunch of error messages. PLEASE HELP.

This indicates that you’ll need to ask your host to allow PHP to write session data to tmp directory so that Event Espresso can work properly.

Josh, I’m sorry but I’m not a website expert and I have no idea how to implement your recommendation.

Could you speak layman’s terms and give me some pointers on where to start?
I’m assuming since we have a wordpress site that’s the ‘host’ you refer to.

Thanks in advance.

Hi James,

The host is your hosting company, or server administrator. Most hosts will have this turned on by default, but not all of them do. If it’s off, you can ask them to configure the server so that PHP can write session data.
