Cookie Test Failed

This could be caused by 1 of the following 3 issues

  • There's a wrong cookie domain and path setup
    Check if the domain and path that are shown in your browser address bar are the same as you previously filled in.
  • session.save_path is not accessible
    Open your php.ini and fix the value of that setting
  • You're not allowed to write to the session.save_path
  • Open config.php and find
  • Change to something like
  • Be sure /home/SOMETHING/tmp is writeable (chmod 777 if necesary)
  • Cookie Test Succeeds

    If the test passes, you will be presented with another screen:
