    Does your MySQL user have write access to that directory? Does it have the FILE privilege on the database server?

    There are more details here:

    You could try changing the temp directory to another one.



    Thank You for your quick response..
    I am a Beginner in this aspect..
    Can you guide me, Where and how should we give GRANT.. or where should I add this line..?
    GRANT FILE ON *.* to db_user@localhost

    You could try changing your temp directory by putting this in your wp-config.php:

    define( 'WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/tmp/' );

    Other than that, you should ask your database administrator about granting FILE privilege to your user.
