Zend cache exemption


#1

I’m trying to install Omeka classic on my server. I get this error message at step six on these instructions https://omeka.org/classic/docs/Installation/Installation/

I have modified the db.ini file; the .htaccess file is uploaded. (Under " your installation was unsuccessful" two .htaccess files are mentioned, but I’ve read this over several times, and only one is mentioned that I can see). I’ve deleted the entire install and started over again. I know enough to be dangerous, but I have no idea what this error message means!

thanks for any help–

Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Zend_Cache_Exception’ with message ‘Could not determine temp directory, please specify a cache_dir manually’ in /home/ . . . [addresses deleted]

This means we can’t figure out where the temporary directory on your system is. Usually it’s just /tmp… you might have an issue with permissions allowing Omeka to write there or something similar.


#3

My global php.ini file has permissions set at permissions for this are set at 755. It names this path for the tmp files:
session.save_path = /tmp and the zend extension in the file shows this: zend_extension = /usr/local/ioncube/ioncube.so

I don’t see a /tmp folder whose permissions I can change, even though I am seeing hidden files including .htaccess. I’m still confused–thanks for any help.

I have exactly the same problem. I understand that I have to change the path to the correct tmp folder, but I don’t understand exactly which line of which file I have to modify, nor how exactly to modify it (what to write).
Thanks for help.
