  • I’m trying to upload images saved on my computer to the blog. Here is the blog I oversee (this is a company blog)
    *Please disregard the blog’s design, we’re in the process of revamping the blog with a new layout.

    This is a NEW error, I have not received this error in the past. My recent post includes a picture loaded using its corresponding link. I couldn’t use the image I created and saved to my computer.

    Again this is the error message I receive.

    Missing a temporary folder”

    I hope this was enough information needed to help me solve this problem.


    The issue may be something your host can quickly remedy for you (or at least point you in the right direction). Otherwise, if you’re in a self-hosted situation that’s completely under your control, there’s a ton of previous discussions on the issue here in the forums that might offer a solution. Here’s a quick link to similar situations and ideas: has failed to upload due to an error missing a temporary folder wordpress

    My first suggestion would be to make contact with your hosts support group and see if it’s something they can quickly help you with. Get that out of the way before spending a lot of time on any alternative solutions, just to be sure it isn’t something to do some recent server side change your host may have made, or something common that they might be able to quickly point out.

    – just a footnote: You should probably upgrade that version of WordPress as soon as you get things sorted out. It’s behind by a couple of releases.
