    They did it for me and it worked! You can lock this if need be. Once again Steve, you've made me a happy vbulletin customer.

    You need to ask your host to do this.

    Actually tell them to create a /var/tmp directory on this server and chmod it to 777.

    last question concerning this (pardon me drawing it out). but what about that "var"? i don't need them to add that as well?

    so all they have to do is add a "tmp" directory, chmod it to 777 and the problem will be fixed?

    No. You need root access to the server to do this.

    If you need to ask them, tell them to create a /tmp direcotry on this server off the root directory and chmod it to 777.
    can't i just FTP to the server and do that myself? After they/I create that directory, what do I add? The problem will be fixed just by adding that directory and chmod it to 777?

    i don't remember seeing this on my old server though [i recently transfered, dec 21st, 2005]. what about that "var" directory? i don't know what that is , do i have to add that as well?

    there is no way i can do this myself? i have a Virtually Private Server with iPower web. and if i have to go to them, what exactly is it i am asking for?

    and Happy New Year Mr. Machol! i appreciate all the answers you've giving us in the past, i stay seeing you working hard on here, so just make sure you don't drink too LITTLE tonight.

    This error means:

    System error: 13 = Permission denied

    The directory in that error either does not exist, or it is not world-readable and writable (chmod777.) You need to check and correct both situations to fix this error.
    there is no "var" or "tmp" directory on MySQO or in on my server. i am not sure how to edit it. i know how to edit permissions, i just don't know what folder
