I’m trying to access my panel for my website that was built on Kirby two and am getting the following error.
I am hosting a sub website that using kirby 3 and had to update my PHP to 7.1 Could this be the root of the problem? Please let me know and thank you.
I can confirm I have several K2 sites up and running on PHP 7.1, so that version of PHP shouldn’t be the problem.
As for what can cause the problem; at first sight this looks like a non-existant location for your session directory, or a permission problem.
try emptying the session folder. maybe kirby tries to load a php5 session with php7 code and something fails.
Also try updating Kirby itself. I see your on version 2.5.2 where as the current version is 2.5.12.
How would I update Kirby itself without the Panel?
I’m having trouble finding the sessions folder? Where is it normally?
It’s inside the
That’s what I thought but there’s nothing like that here:
Sorry, that was nonsense, there is no session folder inside Kirby 2.
Should be in the
/tmp folder on the server, you can check with
phpinfo() where that data is stored.
Hey so update on this— I ended up having to contact iPage[my host] who said the scripts being used on 2.5.2 aren’t compatible with 7.1+ and downgraded my PHP again. They said that the scripts for 2.5.2 were compatible with version 5.6.
How can I go about upgrading my website to the latest version of Kirby 2?
Grab a copy of the
2.5.12 Starterkit and replace the
/panel folders in your project with the corresponding folders from the Starterkit.
Alright that worked.
