Wordpress "Temp Folder Missing" Issue
Wordpress "Temp Folder Missing" Issue
Hey wonderful web-masters out there,

I'm running into an issue that I need help with.  I'm running into the classic "Temp Folder Missing" issue oh so prevelant on misconfigured wordpress sites.  But its deeper than this issue..  All of my wordpress sites are unable to upload media via the PHP script uploader included in wordpress so it has to be an issue on the server, not just the site.

I've tried defining the temp folder in the wp-config.php file.  (source:, I've tried moving the temp directory to a different area, including outside of the root "public_html" folder and setting it to 777 permissions.  None of this has made a difference.

The trigger for this issue came about during an upgrade to PHP 5.6 a few weeks back for a certain wordpress plugin (the snapshots are long gone at this point, so no rolling it back).  PHP 5.3.20 is uninstalled currently to the best of my knowledge.  I would like to keep 5.6 if possible, its working fine, other than the single temp folder issue on media upload.

At some point I also touched the Suhosin flags in the php.ini file, so if anyone would be so kind as to go into their apache module admin and copy/paste me the default suhosin values for veritual host blacklisting commands, that would be greatly appreciated.

Any help navigating this issue would be amazing.  I'm very lost as to what is blocking me from being able to upload files, or what is misdirecting them away from a working temp directory.
