Error after upgrade to 1.91 - 10494

I upgraded to 1.91 - 10494 recently.

I am getting the following warning:
Warning: opendir(/home/mana4671/public_html/limesurvey/tmp/upload/) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/mana4671/public_html/limesurvey/common_functions.php on line 7103
Could not open temporary directory

The warning comes up only sometimes. Sometimes it comes when I am trying to log into Limesurvey as admin. Other times the error comes when I am designing a survey or when I am previewing a survey or trying to answer an activated survey. I am using the basic template.

In previous builds as well as previous versions I never had any problems. This problem has surfaced only in the past week.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am not a techie, so I am hoping there is an easy fix.

Thanks.

Just create the directory and it will be fine.

Thanks for your response.

Which directory should I create?

The "tmp" directory is already there (set to 755), so I don't know why it says could not open temporary directory. But there is no "upload" directory inside tmp. I have only index.html and readme.txt in the tmp directory (these two files have 644 permission setting).

The puzzling thing that the warning comes up only sometimes. When I reload the page, I am able to progress further without any problem.

Thanks.

The /tmp/upload dir mentioned in the error message. It should have been created during the update (how did you update from 1.90?)

Hi,

Thanks very much for the help.
I created the directory and so far have not had any problems.
