    I installed Ispconfig3 on a Ubuntu Server 12.04
    When I try to access the panel on phpmyadmin, I find this error:
    Fatal error: session_start(): Failed to initialize storage module: files (path: ) in /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/session.inc.php on line 81

    I Checked any permission problems but it seems all right.

    Could you help me please?

    Further investigations on that server (I'm a collegue of Sent) shows that /phpmyadmin is being served using a secondary version of php. On that server we installed php 5.5 using this howto. Placing a phpinfo() in the phpmyadmin dir shows that it's using php5.5 (instead of system's 5.3), which seems to be missing default php.ini stuff (because it usually comes from php-fpm). So we're wondering why mod_php5 is using php5.5 instead of 5.3, and how we can revert that in order to use the system one! thanks

    Creating a symlink in /opt pointing to php-5.5/lib/php.ini temporary fixed, but it's still weird it's using 5.5 instead of 5.3
