Default fatal error in browser

I get a fatol error message in my browser on the homepage of one of my sites. My other sites are working just fine. Here is the message.
HTML Code:
Fatal error: session_start() [<a href='function.session-start'>function.session-start</a>]: Failed to initialize storage module: user (path: /var/lib/php5) in /var/www/web1/web/init.php on line 3
Here is the beginning lines if init.php
HTML Code:

error_reporting( E_ERROR );

define ('FULL_PATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');

if (!is_readable(FULL_PATH.'myconfigs/config.php') ) {
	if (is_readable('install.php')){
		header("location: install.php");
	} else {
		header("location: ../install.php");
There is nothing in /var/lib/php5.
