TikiWiki installation Error

Posted by Rishikesh Vispute Categories: cpanel


If you receive the error below after installing tikiwiki, please follow the steps provided.

Tiki is not properly set up:

The directory ‘/tmp’ does not exist or PHP is not allowed to access it (check open_basedir entry in php.ini).

Your options:

1- With FTP access:
a) Change the permissions (chmod) of the directories to 777.
b) Create any missing directories
c) Execute the Tiki installer again (Once you have executed these commands, this message will disappear!)


2- With shell (SSH) access, you can run the command below.

a) Run and follow the instructions:
$ bash
$ cd /home/username/public_html/tiki
$ sh

The script will offer you options depending on your server configuration.

b) Execute the Tiki installer again (Once you have executed these commands, this message will disappear!)

If you have problems accessing a directory, check the open_basedir entry in
/usr/lib/php.ini or httpd.conf.


You will receive the warning if your server does not support sessions (session.save_path = ‘/tmp’). You need to change the session.save_path for your account. Refer the steps below on a suexec/suphp server.

1. You need to create your own /tmp directory under the document root for example /home/username/public_html/tmp and set the 777 permission.

2. Create custom php.ini file under your account and set the

session.save_path = /home/username/public_html/tmp
replace the session.save_path = /tmp to session.save_path = /home/username/public_html/tmp

3. copy this php.ini file under your all directories.

You are done !
