I have the next problem in the sites with the Akeeba Profesional for WordPress:

Warning: session_start(): open(/tmp/sess_75f2v2apl6mpcdei2pgkab8fb4, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in pen(/tmp/sess_75f2v2apl6mpcdei2pgkab8fb4, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /home/jdev2016/public_html/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/helpers/AkeebaBackupWP.php on line 51

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/XXXXXX/public_html/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/helpers/AkeebaBackupWP.php:51) in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/helpers/AkeebaBackupWP.php on line 51

I think the problem is related with the cookies and the "~" in the path of my website. I use Siteground and Cpanel and the path in the sandbox o develop site is for example:

If I erase the cookies the problem dissapears.

Any suggestion?

Thanks a lot!

I attach a screenshot.

we are trying to start PHP session, but the path saved in your PHP configuration is not writable.
You should contact your host and report that the function session_start() returns the error your reported: open(/tmp/sess_75f2v2apl6mpcdei2pgkab8fb4, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13)
They will fix it for your or provide you the instructions on how do that.
