    Default Link not working in installation instructions

    Hi I am in the midst of installing zen cart and have come up to this:

    The session.use_trans_sid setting in your server's PHP.INI file is set to ON.

    This could potentially cause you some problems with session handling and possibly even security concerns.

    You can work around this by setting an .htaccess parameter such as described here:, or you could disable it in your PHP.INI if you have access to it.

    For more information on the security risks it imposes, see:

    (You may have to create the .htaccess file if you don't already have one.)

    The link to www.olate does not exist.

    Default Re: Link not working in installation instructions

    Thanks. We'll correct it in the next update.

    a) Your hosting company should be fixing that setting server-wide.
    b) If they're incompetent to do that, add "php_value session.use_trans_sid off" to your .htaccess file if they'll allow that. And beware of other security problems the host probably has if they've not paid attention to that setting.
