=====Wikka wont start - failing to initialize session handler=====

After succesfully configuring the wiki Wikka (database connects just fine, and all else seems to run fine) you can click on a link to 'your newly created site'.
But it doest.
**Fatal error: Failed to initialize session module in /var/www/wikka/wikka.php on line 1150**


There seems to be the need for session handling.

==Technical explanation==
Not known to me...

===Applies to===
Cases where the "session.auto_start" variable is turned off the "php.ini" file - not sure, but was true in my case.

My configuration fyi:
~-Debian stable (woody)
~-Wikka version
~-PHP Version 4.1.2 here is my [[ | phpinfo]]
~ .. need more info?

===Solution - thank you JavaWoman ===
Edit your php.ini and change the option "session.save_handler" to:
**session.save_handler = files**
