Hey everyone - i just wanted to setup a fresh omeka on my server and get that error:

? ? Any idea what i can do to solve it?

We’ve seen this one before, but pretty rarely.

The caching functionality here will check PHP’s upload_tmp_dir, then the system temp directory returned by sys_get_temp_dir(), and a couple ways after that to try to find a usable temporary directory. You only get this error if all of those attempts fail to find a temporary directory the cache can write to. Maybe you have a quite locked-down server, possibly using the open_basedir PHP setting?

You can manually set what temporary directory the cache will try to use by setting a line in application/config/config.ini:

cache.locale.backend.options.cache_dir = "/path/to/cache/dir"

where /path/to/cache/dir is replaced with the actual path you want to use. Keep in mind it will have to be a folder that exists and is accessible and writable by the Omeka PHP process.
