Plugin Snapshot gives error on _session

Installed the Plugin Snapshot in my Buddypress website.

Wordpress 3.6

Buddypress 1.8.1


The plugin is able to make a snapshot, but during the (for testing purposes…:wink: restore, it halts. After that, I gave to let is reproduce a new archive. It finds that snapshot again, however a restore did not take place.

The Snapshot plugin shows an error under “Settings” -> “Server Info”:

Session save path: /var/lib/php5

Session save path is not a valid directory.

Session save path is not writeable.

In my case I have no control over the php.ini file in order to adjust the path or make it writable.

So how do I go about this?

(also read the recent comment on the same question, but found no answer in it…:wink:
