[Pmwiki-users] Uploads?

Just wanted to say I worked this problem out.  Apparently this is the error 
you get when php tries to upload a file when upload_tmp_dir (from php.ini) is 
pointing to a directory that doesn't exist.  When using Yahoo's web hosting 
/tmp is actually a directory called tmp in your home directory.  The user is 
responsible for creating it.  Once this directory was created uploads started 
to work right.  

I did have to manually create the directories in which the uploads would be 
stored, but I expected that.  

Thanks all.
