Site5 - Built For Designers & Developers MENU

Where is the default PHP upload_tmp_dir?

Looking at the PHP upload_tmp_dir directive value via Site Admin -> Programming Center -> PHP ‘no value’ is defined (default PHP 5.2 configuration).

This means uploaded files should be “stored in the server’s default temporary directory”. (

What is the default tmp directory & is it dedicated/unique per account?

As a suggestion the value of the TMPDIR environment variable could be added to the Site Admin -> Programming Center -> Server Info.

Hi Kpowz,

The default tmp directory is /tmp. It’s shared by all accounts and users on the server.

Great suggestion! I’ll be sure to pass that along!
