WordPress Importer
"Missing a temporary folder." Importer (2 posts)

    Hi, I just installed WordPress Importer to import a 47.8KB xml file generated by wordpress to be re-imported. Whenever I try to upload & import the file, it says:

    "Sorry, there has been an error.
    Missing a temporary folder."

    Any ideas on what's going on?

    Sounds like a configuration issue to me. That error is generated internally by PHP (UPLOAD_ERR_NO_TMP_DIR), it means that PHP doesn't have a temporary directory to store uploads before they are move to a permanent location. Surely adding media items doesn't work either (Media > Add New)?

    You'll need to speak to your hosting provider about fixing this.
