Using DFP in a restricted environment

Using DFP in a restricted environment

I'm trying to set up some upload fields with DFP on a server where only one folder is open for server writing access. Any other files must be FTP'd in. If I remember correctly, DFP uploads the file to a temporary directory and then moves the file once the upload is complete. If that's right, what do you recommend I do to get this to work? Let me know if I must have another folder server-writable or if I can switch the temporary folder to the one folder I have available to me somehow.

Thanks - Joe

in the php.ini file, there is a setting called "upload_tmp_dir"

this sets the temporary directory where uploaded files will be stored, digital file pro will then copy the uploaded file from this directory to the upload folder in your site.

if the "upload_tmp_dir" is not set, php will use the system temp directory.

Thanks, Jason. Is this how all upload routines work? If not, why was this route taken? I'm just asking to explain it to the client.

yes, this is the way file uploads work in PHP.

The form creates a $_FILES array for the file fields and a $_POST array for all of the other form elements.

when the server gets the $_FILES array, it creates the uploaded file in the upload_tmp_dir

A PHP script can access the file in the upload_tmp_dir and save it to another location.

The IT dept. at the university came back and said that the TMP directory was enabled for server writing. I now get a series of errors when I try to submit a photo via my update page:
