Error initializing sessions directory

FireStats requires write access to a directory to store session information, in normal circumstances the temp directory is used, but if the server is configured to use PHP safe mode than using the temp directory directly may not be possible.
in such cases, FireStats attempts to use the directory fs_sessions under the FireStats home directory.
this may fail if user used to run PHP does not have write access to that directory (a very common setup).

what you should do in such cases, is to create the directory for FireStats, and grant the php user write access to it.
exactly how to do highly depends on your server configuration. if you encounter problems please consult your system administrator.
