Well.. I wasn't entirely sure myself, so I checked the docs: http://php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php

upload_tmp_dir string
The temporary directory used for storing files when doing file upload.  
Must be writable by whatever user PHP is running as. If not specified  
PHP will use the system's default.

If the directory specified here is not writable, PHP falls back to the  
system default temporary directory. Ifopen_basedir is on, then the  
system default directory must be allowed for an upload to succeed.

So I'm guessing /tmp or /private/tmp if it's not set? Check to see if  
it is set with phpinfo(). It is entirely possible it's set to  
something else on a shared hosting platform.
