It seems like a million people had this problem already, and some of them were able to fix it and others couldn't. This just hit me today and I didn't have this problem before. I've been running WP for 2 mos with no issues prior. Here's where I'm at...
I cannot install new plugins or upload new media. I get the very general error "Missing a temporary folder."
I have tried to rectify this by creating a new temp folder called "tmp" in my root directory and pointing the php5.ini file to it. I believe (but I could be wrong) that I successfully attemted this because phpinfo() tells me:
Loaded Configuration File: /home/content/j/r/o/jroodman/html/php5.ini
Any idea what might be causing this or can anyone figure out a solution? I'd be very grateful. Thank you for your time.
