Good afternoon folks!!
From the category of "I love my host but..."
My host, Powweb, recently sent this message:
"PHP's default upload_tmp_dir was /tmp, which is no longer world writeable as this is where the worms using the phpBB exploit download their programs to spread. This was necessary to stop our servers from attacking others. Your scripts should not download files to this area anyways as it is not available on all the servers your site is hosted on. "
Not a problem, for uploads. I changed the directory in my custom PHP.ini file to reflect my own personal directory. However, now the Excel button in my gradebook no longer works. Since the tmp directory has been disabled and memory cannot be used, it can't create the tmp file for Excel.
Can anyone suggest a work around for this, aside from downloading the .txt file and opening it in Excel?
Happy New Year!
