Can't do import of emails from CSV file

Postby KenGermann » 6:30pm, Fri 18 Apr, 2014

Just installed PHPList 3.0.5, but when I try to do an import of subscriber emails from a .CSV file, I get the following error message:

The temporary directory for uploading () is not writable, so import will fail


I have tried creating a "/tmp" directory with permissions of "777", but to no avail.

Any idea what is the solution to this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What have you defined the temp directory as in your config/config.php file?

It's somewhere around line 666 or thereabouts.

Code: Select all
$tmpdir = '/tmp';

Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x

I have it defined as /tmp as I said in my post. Since my original post, I contacted my web host provider about the issue and he has "enabled /tmp access on this domain".

It is now working fine, and importing the emails. :D

Thanks,

Ken

Please let me know what the solution is for being able to import emails. I receive this message also:

The temporary directory for uploading is not writable, so import will fail ()

Where do I place this TMP file?

Thank you!
