I can't login to the admin panel because it goes through wp-foro. Something has broken!
They replied to me with this:
Seems the session path is all good:
As per the recommendation in the provided thread, I have updated the session.save_path to be the /tmp folder on the account, with the path '/home/thegre/tmp'. I checked the folder and I can see that the session files are being created, however, the warnings are still present on the login page and the logging in is not possible.
I cleared all caches of the website, but the issue continues.
Could you please, share that information with them and ask them if there are any checks/changes that need to be performed for the plugin so that the new path is detected.
At the moment, the website is configured to work with the latest 7.3.7 PHP version, while the wpforo is outdated.
Share this information with the developers too and ask them whether this version of the plugin can work with the newest PHP version and whether the update needs to be performed.
Let us know if there are any changes required from our end and we will gladly help.

What do you think?
He said the wpforo is outdated - it may not be the latest release, but it's like a month old at most. Like I said, I haven't updated/edited/touched any website settings in over a month
Thanks for letting me know. I'll get to fixing that as soon as this is fixed.
@tgw Can you see/check what is the FILE permission of wp-config.php ? Is it 644 or 600 ?
Also, i found your error (not exactly but most of it) in Wordpress.org, in two different caching plugins forums.
I see you run Rocket cache ? Could your problems be related to Rocket cache ?
This is awkward, but could you send me that debug log if you still have it on file? Or let me know how to get it?
I'm trying to convince siteground that something happened on the server end and needs correction. And maybe the log will help them figure it out
log files, .ht*** files and other files should be automatically blocked (403) not by you but from the hosting setup. Unless you manage your server, then it is your fault.
As for your support guys whereever you host, they have no idea what they are talking about. Sorry, but that is the truth.
Saying for example that wpForo version is not compatible/updated and things like that.
Ask for your problem to be escalated to a proper support team.
Also something else, rather strange with your site. The wp-rocket cache signature
<!-- This website is like a Rocket, isn't it?
should appear at the very end of the page. And in your case it is not. There are some scripts AFTER the signature (meaning the end of the cached page). That is strange, unless wp-rocket works like that, mixing things (i doubt it).
