  • Resolved wisecapt


    First i want to say, the wp pro quiz for windows IIS is working 🙂 And looks great!! I started testing out some of the features and came across an error.

    When I try to add media (a picture) and try to save it in the Insert Media screen, I get a “Missing a temporary folder” error message. Not sure why this message is popping up when i drag and drop images or use the select file button to input a image for WPProQuiz

  • After much research and trying many different things, I finally was able to upload files to wordpress using windows and IIS. The dreaded “Missing a temporary folder” message is resolved.

    To fix the problem, you need to find the PHP.ini file in the folder where PHP was installed. There is an entry under the following heading

    ; Fopen wrappers ;
    upload_tmp_dir=”XXX” –where xxx is the directory that php wants to upload the image files. On my system XXX=C:\windows\temp

    I changed the XXX folder from c:\windows\temp to another directory because the windows iusr account does not have privileges to this folder. Just make a “WP-temp” folder that is not in the windows directory, and change the (upload_tmp_dir=XXX) to upload_tmp_dir=”c:\WP-temp”

    If you want to verify all of your PHP file settings, make a php file with the code in a text file. Make a website that Points to this file


    Save the file as index.php With your web browser open up this file and look for “upload_tmp_dir” and it will tell you where it wants to save its files.
