osCommerce: Session save path Fix

If you are using MySQL based sessions in your osCommerce installation and your PHP runs with Safe Mode set to On, you receive the following message:

Warning: session_save_path() [function.session-save-path]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is X is not allowed to access owned by uid Y in /path/to/your/oscommerce/catalog/includes/functions/sessions.php on line 149

We also recommend this MOD when your web server has Safe Mode Off too.

Open:
catalog/includes/functions/sessions.php

Find:

  function tep_session_save_path($path = '') {
    if (!empty($path)) {
      return session_save_path($path);
    } else {
      return session_save_path();
    }
  } 

Replace with:

  function tep_session_save_path($path = '') {
    if (STORE_SESSIONS != 'mysql') {
      if (!empty($path)) {
        return session_save_path($path);
      } else {
        return session_save_path();
      }
    }
  } 

Open:
catalog/admin/includes/functions/sessions.php

Find:

  function tep_session_save_path($path = '') {
    if ($path != '') {
      return session_save_path($path);
    } else {
      return session_save_path();
    }
  } 

Replace with

  function tep_session_save_path($path = '') {
    if (STORE_SESSIONS != 'mysql') {
      if (!empty($path)) {
        return session_save_path($path);
      } else {
        return session_save_path();
      }
    }
  } 

Save and close all files and it’s done!

The Inveo team provided the best service and support that we have received from any vendors we have ever used. They did work that was far beyond the scope of the purchase, and for this we are grateful and can certainly highly recommend them to anyone else.

I was a little concerned about using a 3rd party SEO module for osCommerce - there were some well established ones and they were free - Magic SEO URLs for osCommerce were paid for! But I was looking at my sites and getting concerned with duplicate content - everything was being duplicated and the search engines (allegedly) look down on...
