If you placed the tmp directory in the right place, the path to the Safe Mode Temp Directory will be:

    /home/baselo5/tmp

    Also the php.ini setting for 'upload_tmp_dir' is empty. You (as root) or your host will need to edit php.ini and set 'upload_tmp_dir' to point to the full path to a directory on the server that is chmod'd to 1777. You will also need to restart Apache after making this change.

    But you are running open_basedir restrictions. Enable phpinfo in the Admin CP, then provide the URL to your forums. This may help us troubleshoot this problem.

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> Public phpinfo() Display Enabled

    This is still an issue. I am on a VPS but I am NOT running in safe_mode...

    I did that in /home/baselo5:

    drwxrwxrwx 9 baselo5 baselo5 1024 Nov 26 14:25 tmp/

    /home/baselo5/tmp/vbulletin

    drwxrwxrwt 2 baselo5 baselo5 1024 Nov 26 14:25 vbulletin/


    And then I changed my "Safe Mode Temporary Directory" settings to point to /home/baselo5/tmp/vbulletin

    But then thought, I m not running in Safe Mode.

    So again, why am I getting this error:

    Warning: tempnam() [function.tempnam]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File() is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/baselo5:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in /includes/class_upload.php on line 346

    /tmp should be set to 1777 not 0777.

    Most likely /tmp.

    You can point vBulletin to another temporary location under vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options.

    Create directory call tmp and CHMOD it 0777 within your account and point vBulletin to it. You might also need to turn on Safe Mode within vBulletin.

    started a topic Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file.

    Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file.

    I was trying to upload an avatar from a remote URL and get this error:


    Warning
    : tempnam() [function.tempnam]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File() is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/baselo5:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp) in /includes/class_upload.php on line 346

    Where is the temp DIR?
