Exp 2.3.4 install in suphp 5.5

having issues getting forward from the installation page. It claims that File Uploads are not enabled but when I look the server php settings, it's written
file_uploads = on
max_file_uploads = 20

upload_max_filesize = 100M

upload_tmp_dir = no value

Is the installation script failing, could I pass it somehow or is there something that really would limit the File Uploads? What else I could check. Permissions are normal 755 for folders and 644 for files (and it is not complaining about the file permissions anyhow, those are all "okay").

  • Actually what's failing is the system's temp folder (for the web server, NOT to be confused with the Exponent /tmp folder) is not readable/writeable (upload_tmp_dir). Though it doesn't have to be specifically set in the php.ini file (you have the default above with is ok in most cases), we ask for the variable, then attempt to write and delete a file to the system temp folder.
