When trying to upload media to my Wordpress 4.0 running on a shared Apache 2.2.14, PHP 5.3.2 host, I get the error message "Missing a temporary folder". I have no influence over the
php.ini which is globally managed by the host and outside my
I set the
wp-config.php. Here is the relevant part of this file:
if ( !defined('ABSPATH') ) define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/'); require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php'); define('WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/temp/');
I also tried other variations, such as:
define('WP_TEMP_DIR', '/www/wp-content/temp/'); // absolute path
Note that both the folders
wp-content/temp have the rights
Still, it does not work. Note that whenever I make a change, I log out from admin and log back in. I have no control over the server itself, so I have no clue whether and when my settings in this folder apply.
So my questions:
- Should changes in
wp-config.phphave an immediate effect?
- How can I get more feedback within Wordpress than just the error message in the admin page? How can I debug this error?
- Do you have any other idea what causes this problem and how to solve it within my shared hosting environment (no console, just FTP and WP admin)?
