Having all sorts of file upload problems. When uploading a theme (.zip) wordpress can’t save the file and says:

The uploaded file could not be moved to /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/2010/08

Tyying to upload a file through the “Upload New Media” media manager and errors there as well

Does this have to do with us having wordpress as the root (no /wordpress) site? I read in another place it is a permissions error, has this been fixed or how can we fix it?

FIX: needed to manually update the upload_tmp_dir in php.ini

We cannot reproduce it. However in the case it doesn’t work, it may be necessary to edit php.ini and set upload_tmp_dir=/tmp
