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?

Hi!

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.
