PHP.ini Issue on install

Post by surabhi » 08 Mar 2018, 12:39

Hi there,

Once I was done extracting files, the main link is not working. I get 'CATS Error: session.auto_start must be set to 0 in php.ini.' However, when I try, it worked just fine and went all the way to the end and installation was done. The main page gives this error, so I cannot log in.

Can you help, please? Many thanks in advance for all the help.

Hi Surabhi,

is do you have session.auto_start = 1 in php.ini for some particular reason?

It's considered 'best practise' to have it set to 0, and opencats requires it too.
