the session save path on my OpenSuSE from the php.ini
session.save_path = "/var/lib/php5"

the rights:
drwxr-xr-x  2 wwwrun    root     802816  4. Mai 13:39 php5

the apache user runs with wwwrun.www 

so when something is not correct with the permission or user then you
are not able to write to this directory

maybe someone set a php_value in the apache config to a wrong session
path.
