Document Upload Missing a temporary folder

HI All,

Started getting this message in the error log when trying to attach a file to a request.

Document Upload	Missing a temporary folder.

The file itself is uploaded to the server in the configured attachment folder on the server. but does not attach to the request.

Any Ideas?


I’m not 100% sure, but it looks like PHP doesn’t have a “temporary” directory to upload to. This is separate from the final directory an uploaded file will end up in. It’s typically a PHP configuration settings labeled upload_tmp_dir, found in the php.ini file used for web requests in your system. You can find that setting’s value and ensure that setting is configured/set to a valid path.

That setting uses the system default if it’s not defined.
