I have a multisite setup on a server that requires me to upload to a stage server then send a "publishnow.txt" file over to send everything to the production server. This is a state agency hence the extra steps in getting core file changes made and live on the web. This is very new to me having always worked with hosts like Godaddy.
I am having the hardest time configuring my tmp folder in order to upload any media to either of my 2 sites. I am getting the usual error of
“image.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error. Missing a temporary folder.
when I try to upload anything. My host has a public_html folder and a tmp folder in the root. I would love to tell Wordpress to use the tmp folder from the root, but I don't know if I need to write that in the wp-config.php file, the .htaccess file (which I cannot edit as the host says they do not parse that file) or something in the network settings within WP.
I am lost and losing time and patience is dwindling with my client. Perhaps someone with a clearer head could imaging the situation and advise me what I should try.
