We had redis installed on our remote server, so we had Cm_RedisSession <active> set to true. However, we always get an error when running local server due to Redis not installed.

Is there a way for magento to ignore it without modifying the xml file?

Note that I cannot install anything (including redis) on my local server due to user permissions.

just fall back to default sessions in your app/etc/local.xml file.


and remove the redis_session configuration
