session_start problem...

P: n/a
Hi. I'm very new to PHP so this may be a dumb question, but I'm stuck.
I have just compiled and installed the latest and the greatest
versions of Apache (2.0.48), PHP (4.3.3) and MySQL (4.0.15) on a Redhat 9 box.
The web and MySQL server runs fine, but I have problem with PHP. I have a small
php testapplication taken from a MySQL book that accesses a small database.
When I point my browser to the php script, I get the following error :

"Fatal error. session_start(). Failed to initialize storage module in
'my script' line 29. Line 29 in the script calls session_start.

I have a phpinfo script in my documentroot on the webserver and if I run it
everything looks hunky dory.

I have followed every instruction I could find on the php-website on how to
install php with apache V2, read all the manuals I have, but I can't figure
this out. Anyone here has any idea ?
