Theres another issue with on-rev.  Even if you set the sessionSavePath, it
won't work due to the default version of LC on on-rev.  You need to
override the version using an .htaccess file, but i've not managed to
actually get that to work for me.  Looking for the link that tells you how
to do this. If you actually get it to work please let me know how!

Unless they've updated the default version for .lc files, you'll need to
switch to a more recent version of the server to get sessions to work.
