any idea ?

Have you managed to solve the problem? As far as I can see, the store is installed now

Old topic, but I just faced same issue installing recent CS-Cart, and googling took me here, but here is no answer.

Solution: server user that runs install.php script (typically it is not the root user, but it depends on your server config) does not have access to the directory specified in php.ini under [background=#fafafc]session.save_path setting. [/background]

How to fix it:
1) go to php.ini
2) find value for session.save_path
3) if value not set -> set it to smth write-accessible the user that will be running install.php (user that runs php process on your server)

4) if value is set -> ensure that user that will be running install.php has write access to it

You can also check error.log (or whatsoever log name is given in your setup) to find PHP session directory.

In my case: directory was set to /var/lib/php/session that was accessible only for root user for some reason, but my php was running on behalf www user that had no access right to that directory.
