WordPress reports “Missing a temporary folder.” when uploading images
With CloudLinux’s CageFS in use, a website may report that images cannot be uploaded. The following error will appear within the WordPress Dashboard:
“file.png” has failed to upload.
Missing a temporary folder
The most common issue that we have found is that CageFS requires an update such that a temporary folder could be found for uploads.
If you do find that the issue is not within CloudLinux, then adding these line within the website’s wp-config.php file may assist with your issue:
define('WP_TEMP_DIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-content/temp/');
If the website does have CageFS enabled, then we recommend either running a force update with the following command:
Or, you could disable and then enable it with:
cagefsctl --disable $USER
cagefsctl --enable $USER
Where $USER is the username of the account.
