[CiderWebmail] How to configure session store (or ciderwebmail in general)

I'm trying to set up my first ciderwebmail installation. With some
educated guesses, I've got the ciderwebmail_fastcgi.pl script to run
under fastcgi.

However, as soon as I try to access the configured URL, I'm getting the
following error:

[Mon Sep 02 06:17:02 2013] [notice] Apache/2.2.22 (Debian)
mod_auth_tkt/2.1.0 mod_fcgid/2.3.6 mod_ssl/2.2.22 OpenSSL/1.0.1e
mod_wsgi/3.3 Python/2.7.3 configured -- resuming normal operations
Open of share file /tmp/ciderwebmail/session_data failed: Permission

[Mon Sep 02 06:17:11 2013] [warn] [client] (104)Connection
reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server

Now, that's not really surprising because /tmp/ciderwebmail doesn't
exist and my /etc/ciderwebmail/ciderwebmail.conf contains nothing but:

name CiderWebmail
	host localhost
	port 143
language en
username_default_address 0
	method sendmail
	connect_info dbi:SQLite:/var/lib/ciderwebmail/user_settings.sql
root /usr/share/ciderwebmail/root
home /usr/share/ciderwebmail

However, despite extensive googling and grepping, I was unable to find
any documentation of how to configure the session storage, or generally
what I can put into the ciderwebmail.conf file.

Can anyone help?
