this has become a real issue for me as well, i just moved to phplist and thought it was great, now I can't import my list of over 100k emails.

Fatal Error: Something went wrong while uploading the file. Empty file received. Maybe the file is too big, or you have no permissions to read it.

i guess i'll make to make a script to manually import....

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

I am desperate. I am not a developer so... trying to write a workaround is not much of an option.
I tried to follow the above steps on this thread - but I still can't import my list.

I installed a month ago - and I am really at the end of my rope. i need this to work. Does anyone have a solution?

Hi All! I'm new to using PhpList and encountered some problems along the way, but I've managed to solve all of it with the help of this community. I've also encountered this error and resolved it so I want to share how I did it.

1) Go to File Manager of you domain where PHPList is installed. You could also use FTP clients such as http://filezilla-project.org/ to remotely do this.
2) Under "lists" folder, create a folder and name it "tmp".
3) Change the folder's access rights, and allow all permissions.
4) Open config.php file which can be found here: lists/config/. Look for "$tmp_dir" and change the default which is $tmp_dir='/tmp;' to the full path of newly created tmp folder.

To do that go to <yourdomain.com>/lists/admin/?page=info, look for DOCUMENT_ROOT, mine is "/var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs".

So, my tmp folder's full path is: /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/lists/tmp

I modified config.php, $tmp_dir='/tmp;' to $tmp_dir='/var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/lists/tmp';

Don't forget to check all permissions and check the full path.

Test it. Works for me. :D

Kudos to H2B2 for this solution.

Reading emails from file ... ..ok, 4001 lines
