Please specify what happened since it was last working?
Did you make a backup?

I haven’t done anything to it… this just happened completely “out of the blue” so to speak… and, no, i don’t have a backup…

I don’t think it has anything to do with the theme. Did you make any mods to the core files of opencart? Did you clear the website cache? Overwrite the session.php file with one from the original opencart install kit, see if that works…

No, I didn’t… can you please help me do that? I don’t even know if I have those files… Please, please, please help me… I didn’t modify anything

Solved the problem

For anyone else hosting on godaddy be sure to replace in /system/library/session.php



session_save_path(“/tmp”); session_start();

and modify the php.ini to show session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440 instead of 1200000
