#19 login error - new installation

0.7.0 and Prior

I just installed the blog software (which I really like from the website,
btw), but after I set up the passsword.php file, when I try to log in, I
get the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: session_set_cookie_params()
in /usr/home/peter/public_html/blog/scripts/sb_login.php on line 169

I tried deleting the password.php file and going through the
installation setup again, but to no avail. What am I doing wrong here?

    What version are you trying to install? Are you running on
    your home server or something setup by "professionals" like
    a web hosting company?

    Usually what the problem here is that the server you are
    using to host the blog has a version of php older than 4.3.
    (We say 4.1 in some of the literature, but there are a few
    functions that are much prettier...)

    Anyways...check the PHP version installed. Check that it is
    installed properly. And please, everybody, provide
    specifics as to your server environment and version of blog
    being installed...

    I'm trying to install version 0.4.5 on my personal server, which is running
    FreeBSD 5.4, Apache 2, and PHP version mod_php4-4.3.11_1,1. I've also
    tried installing PHP5 (mod_php5-5.0.4_2,1), but with the same results.

    the solution turned out to be that my php4 installation didn't have session
    support compiled in, so i just had to enable that (in FreeBSD this meant
    installing /usr/ports/www/php4-session or by choosing session support in
    the options for lang/php4-extensions) and now everything works beautifully.
    hopefully this will help someone else in the future...
