Upload directory directory does not exist or is not writable

hi guys, I imagine you've heard this same question before, but I've searched all through out the forum and I can't find any reference to it. I installed singapore, but there was this error at the end:

Upload directory directory does not exist or is not writable (upload_tmp_dir). Singapore will function but you may not be able to upload images via the admin interface.

and then of course the upload admin doesn't work. I looked everywhere for the upload_tmp_dir but I couldn't find it. I have already set the gallery and data directories to writable (777) but nothing changes. Is this something my server administrator needs to solve? Thanks, Aaron

Try searching the forum for upload_tmp_dir. It seems like a server admin thing, although maybe there's a workaround - see the forum postings.

Your server administrator needs to set this in your php-configuration.

Re: Upload directory directory does not exist or is not writable

my administrator helped me, but not by changing server settings. instead he went in and hard coded something into the
install.inc.php .this is the code that he changed:

//$session_save_path = ini_get("session.save_path"); 
  $session_save_path = "/tmp";
//  if(!empty($session_save_path) && is_writable($session_save_path) || ini_get("session.save_handler")!="files") setupMessage("Session save path seems to be correctly specified");
//  else $success &= setupError("Session save path does not exist or is not writable (<code>session.save_path</code>). Singapore will function but you may not be able to use the admin interface");

basically he commented out a section of code and wrote in the correct upload directory.
