    Tools- Import – wordpress, selected file to import, got error:
    Sorry, there has been an error.
    Missing a temporary folder.

    Can anyone tell be what that file needs to be. It clearly needs to be in the “uploads” folder. Tried “temp.php” – no luck.

  • Well, read folder for file, but I am still stuck for a folder name

    removed wordpress import, changed/checked folder permissions wpcontent/uploads/ all set at 777, reinstalled wordpress import. Still nothing works – same error.
    Help, please

    Ah, thanks to my ISP ( all is solved. Apparently I needed access to a /temp folder on the system.

    Lessons learned:
    2.Make a short list of requirements to send to ISP when setting up hosting
    – ensure there is a /temp file to enable import.
    new sites include – just upgrading to 3.1.2: and network. I can feel a blog coming on.. mistakes made, lessons learned

    Glad you were able to solve the issue on your own. Do you mind marking this thread as “resolved” so others know they might find a solution here? Thank you.
