I'm running Magento 1.7 on php6.5, which was previously on php5.3.

First problem, Deprecated functionality: iconv_set_encoding(), was solved with this: Magento 1.9, php 5.6 - Use of iconv.internal_encoding is deprecated

Now I've got a new error message:

ini_set(): Cannot find save handler 'memcache'  in /var/www/rkbridal/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Session/Abstract/Varien.php

How to work through this?


If you are running a single server, I would just configure sessions to use the file system. In you app/etc/local.xml set session_save to files (see below). If you have the memory on your server setup you could mount the var/session and var/cache to memory using tmpfs. See https://www.prohost.be/magento-tmpfs-ramdrive-varcache-and-varsessions/ for details.

  • Thanks! I have just disabled memcache and session_save in local.xml for local development purposes. – TheKitMurkit Jul 7 '17 at 8:23
