[resolved] Failed to write file to disk. (5 posts)

    So I freshly installed wordpress on a Yahoo Hosting account, I did it the 5 minute way and not through the yahoo one click install because I've read bad things, anyways I set it up and have it running with a theme and all.

    Then when I try to upload an image I get this error:

    Failed to write file to disk.

    I've been digging around and so far have tried the following:

    1) I did a phpinfo(); function and my 'file_uploads' function is On.

    2) Added an empty TMP folder the the root.

    3) Created an uploads folder with 777 permissions in the wp-content folder. (where options -> misc. says uploads should go.

    4) Looked at a ton of support tickets from years ago without finding a definitive answer.

    What worked for me was to edit the PHP.INI file and set this parameter
    upload_tmp_dir="/tmp"

    and i restarted apache! Worked like a charm!

    create a php.ini (with the line
    upload_tmp_dir="/tmp")
    and upload in public_html folder.

    I am also getting a "failed to write file to disk" but all of a sudden. It has been fine for the last 4 months (since I set-up the blog) but today ... bang. A problem. But I am new at this and a bit lost in the tech (PHP.INI file, etc.). Can someone direct me to a "How to fix the failed-to-write-file-to-disk problem for Dummies". Many thanks.
