I've set TEMP_DIR = /tmp but the problem is it's on a clustered system. Each node on a cluster has it's own /tmp so setting it here doesn't work it still has a problem with not finding it. What part of phpwiki requires the /tmp folder? I'm using MySQL which I thought didn't require the /tmp directory. Is there a line in the code somewhere that I can comment out to get it working?

; In case your system has no idea about /tmp, TEMP or TMPDIR,
; better provide it here. E.g. needed for zipdumps.
;TEMP_DIR = /tmp
