can't write to temp directory 6 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
While upgrading Joomlawatch from an earlier version to version 1.2.12 I got the following error at the terms and conditions screen.

can't write to temp directory

Because it is the terms and conditions screen it is impossible to change any settings.

Please advise.

Much thanks in advance

I too am having the same problem. I upgraded, and even though all of my directories are writable, I get the message "Can't write to temp directory".

What would be causing this?

Hi,
sorry for this problem. I removed the check, because it was not necessary. Now you should not experience this error. Please download and install: www.codegravity.com/install/JoomlaWatch-...01014-UnzipFirst.zip

Thank you.

Hi There,
joomlawatch.config.php:

there is this obsolete method:

function createLicenseFile() {
$result = 0;
if (!file_exists($this->getLicenseFilePath())) {
$ourFileHandle = fopen($this->getLicenseFilePath(), 'w') or die("can't write to temp directory: ".$config->tmp_path);
$result = fwrite($ourFileHandle, JoomlaWatchHelper::getServerTime());
fclose($ourFileHandle);
}
return $result;
}

just comment the whole body of the method (notice the /* and */)

function createLicenseFile() {
$result = 0;
/*
if (!file_exists($this->getLicenseFilePath())) {
$ourFileHandle = fopen($this->getLicenseFilePath(), 'w') or die("can't write to temp directory: ".$config->tmp_path);
$result = fwrite($ourFileHandle, JoomlaWatchHelper::getServerTime());
fclose($ourFileHandle);
}
*/
return $result;
}

I will submit this to official package too.

Hello,

This issue seems to have returned. I just installed the version for 1.5 and can't get past the license agreement.

I'm really interested in tracking the frequency of our registered users.

Thanks for any help!

I am also having this problem, I have just installed Joomlawatch on my live site and I cannot get past the terms and conditions because of the "cannot write to temp".. I'm using the version for 2.5.

I would appreciate any help on this, because if this component is as good as I think it is, I will not hesitate to purchase it. I can't evaluate it however due to this problem.

The previous answer will fix this - comment out the code in the createLicenseFile function in joomlawatch.config.php, so that there is nothing executing except 'return true;'
