View Full Version : Undefined Index Pain In The A...

Hi there.

I have an error occuring, not all the time, just now and again. I have a feeling it might be session expiry settings but I'm not sure...

It's happened once with me just after I left the page for a time and then went to click next page..

error_reporting (E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

if(isset($_POST['postcode'])) { $_SESSION['postcode']=$_POST['postcode']; }
$usrPostcode = formatBritishPostcode($_SESSION['postcode']);

I haven't pinned down when it's happening yet

If anyone can help

This also pops up around the same time too

function.session-start</a>]: ps_files_cleanup_dir: opendir(/var/lib/php5) failed

I've set my php.ini file to have this

session.gc_probability = 0

Problem is. When I putty in to my server anbd do a search for php.ini I find several files. I editied the one on my VPS Shared hosting which came under my domain name folder.

I've only just restarted the folder, so no idea if that helped yet..

You do realise that the .org.uk domain is for non-profit organisations don't you?

Instead of posting just a few minimal lines of code, please show us the file in [php] tags.

What are all the errors you receive in their entirety?
That second one in specific is a failed C function call. But its not really helpful as it sits unless there's more information on why it failed to open that path (permission denied? Path not found?).
I wouldn't set the probability of the garbage collection to 0. That'll just leave files to never get cleaned up.

It appears to be a permission problem rather than a coding one.

I think the var/lib/php folder doesn't have the right access.

I have chmod it to 777 755 still cause the same error to occur.

I am not sure I want it set at 777 so if anyone has any thought.

Thanks very much..

Post the errors in their entirety. Having an error simply saying it has failed doesn't help.

As for permissions, make sure you check the umask settings as well.
