I installed limesurvey and everything seems to work fine. However, every now and than i get an error message: Could not open temporary directory.

In the forums this problem is mentioned, i should make a directory called tmp.
Unfortunately the server does not allow me to make a new directory called tmp

does anyone have a suggestion?
kind regards

for a good understanding, i can make all kinds of directories, only if i name them tmp or upload it does not work. And these are the directories that seem to be missing

Hi

I guess you are using the wrong hosting then. The directories /tmp and /upload in the LimeSurvey directory are mandatory.

You should try out LimeService www.LimeService.com - our official hosting service.
Support us, too. Donate to the LimeSurvey project and help keep us going!

The solution is not to create the /tmp folder. It should already exist at the Limesurvey package. All you need to do is make the /tmp and the /uploads folder (and all subfolders) writeable.
