The PHP temporary folder is not set

Post by Cobra_Alpha » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:12 pm

Hey Guys!

First of all... Its my very first website I am hosting... but I read pretty much every thread about this issue and I just can't find a solution to my case.
There is a the Warning message:
And a error message
I checked my php.ini and my general config in Joomla
I checked my Permission settings and they are all correct
I tried every single workaround to Install a extension I could find

I dont really care about the warning... I just want my extension to work.

Any Suggestions would be really great

You said you checked the php.ini file, but did you find the following in the php.ini?
Refer to ... s-not-set/ for info on how to set the temp folder.

If you can add the line as directed by the above site, but the problem still exists, I would then suspect this particular setting is a global setting that is overriding anything you try to set locally in the PHP.ini file.

However if you can post the FPA report, that would be useful.
