I installed Civicrm on Wordpress on the plugin folder and I can't active it.

I have this error :

Warning: session_start(): user session functions not defined in /srv/bindings/code/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm.php on line 282 Fatal error: session_start(): Failed to initialize storage module: user (path: ) in /srv/code/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm.php on line 282

Can you help me? Thanks

It looks like your hosting provider or server config has overridden the PHP ini setting session.save_handler (or related settings like session.save_path).

You could try applying a fix similar to the one over on CRM-17212: IPN and other scripts break on Pantheon due to session handler
