Path issue with sub-domain installation
I'm reasonably new to wpForo. I want to move my phpBB forum, as I find it a bit basic and also rather a pain to update - WP updates are so much simpler i.e. click a button or even make it automatic.
I've installed to a sub-directory below my pubic_html directory called wpforum and created a sub-domain to access it as wpforum.mydomain.... When I'm logged in, I constantly get the following error message displayed.
Warning: session_start(): open(/var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea3/sess_3a5b3eccbe5a9392bda442b83a1d0a33, O_RDWR) failed: No such file or directory (2) in /home/pompeybb/public_html/wpforum/wp-content/plugins/go2wpforo/Main.php on line 60
Warning: session_start(): Failed to read session data: files (path: /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea3) in /home/pompeybb/public_html/wpforum/wp-content/plugins/go2wpforo/Main.php on line 60
Is this due to it being a sub-domain? Do I need to configure something to make this work correctly - a path somewhere perhaps? Presumably it is trying to locate a file called: /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea3/sess_3a5b3eccbe5a9392bda442b83a1d0a33.
Edit: I have checked session.save_path in cPanel -> MultiPHP INI Editor.
It is set to: /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php80
Why is /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea3/ being used as a path, instead of /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php80?
Is this configurable somewhere? /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea3/ does not exist.
Getting somewhere with this I think.

In .htaccess in the root path of the main domain (not the wpforum.mydomain...) it is setting session.save_path. I am assuming though, that even if this file was found, this would only kick in if I'm using php version 5.x and I'm using 8.0.27: -

You can't have a subdomain INSIDE a domain. Subdomains have their own root directory, above public_html or whatever the name of the main domain is.
Otherwise it is not a subdomain but a site in a subfolder and from that several issues arrise.
I see you use Cpanel, and Cpanel creates the subdomains just fine.
Thanks for the reply. Maybe I've set the whole thing up incorrectly! I will check with my hosting company.
I look to have got round the problem though, which maybe is a good thing - or maybe not if I've now caused potential issues!
