Your request didn’t contain the proper sessionid cookie — access denied

Filed under: Uncategorized — egoleo @ 3:41 pm

This problem occured in the web browser when i was trying to access our open web mail. One thing is that openwebmail puts users uploaded attachments in cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc/sessions. Users will normally get this error if there is no space left on the partition where cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc/sessions lives or user has exceeded his disk quota.


To solve this, please move cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc/sessions to a larger partition. Then create a symbolic link to that new directly.

Steps as above

cd /new_place

That is change directory to the new big disk space.

mkdir sessions

Create a directory called “sessions” in this new big disk space

mkdir sessions

Create a directory directory called “sessions” this new big disk space.

chmod 770 sessions

Change the mode of the directory “sessions” which was just created.

chown 0 sessions

Change ownership of the “sessions” directory created.

chgrp mail sessions

Add sessions directory created to the mail group.

cd yourweb_cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc

Change directory or move into were your openwebmail/etc is.

cp -rf sessions

Make backup of sessions directory in the “etc” to somewhere safe.

rm -rf  sessions

Delete the sessions in the yourweb_cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc

ln -s /new_place/sessions  .

Still in the “yourweb_cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc” directory, create a symbolic link.
