Can you please try caching, indexing in Magento?! Also try compilation but before running compilation, please take backup of your system just for safety.

Re: 'cache_dir' => 'var/tmp/', is not working please help

you dont have to edit any files, just create writeable tmp directory in magento root or /var folders

'cache_dir' => 'var/tmp/'

to this

'cache_dir' = 'tmp/'



Re: 'cache_dir' => 'var/tmp/', is not working please help

Open /lib/Zend/Cache/Backend/File.php. Line 99 'cache_dir' => 'var/tmp/'

So Magento is trying to refer /var/tmp/ folder and either it couldn't be able to read or write this folder.

So you got 2 solutions,

Solution 1: Give 777 file permission to /var/tmp/ folder.

Solution 2: Open /lib/Zend/Cache/Backend/File.php. Change line 99 to 'cache_dir' => 'null'

Hope this helps.
