Magento 1.5 – Could not determine temp directory, please specify a cache_dir manually

Posted date: 25 Aug 2011 | Posted by: admin | 0 comments

Your Magento website is running well until the day you get the message “Could not determine temp directory, please specify a cache_dir manually”.

This error is caused because the magento is unable to find the temporary directory at the server.

To fix this bug, you should do the following steps:

  1. Create a ‘tmp’ directory at [Magento Directory]/var/
  2. Give 0777 permission to ‘tmp’
  3. Go to: [Magento Directory]/lib/Zend/Cache/
  4. Open file Backend.php
  5. Find this line “if ($this->_isGoodTmpDir(’\\temp’)) “ around line 194
  6. After closing if put following
  7. else{
    return 'var/tmp/';
  8. Save file

That’s it, go and enjoy!

Note: This fix are applied successfully for Magento version 1.5.x, for other version, i’m not sure it will fix that problem! Let try and comment if you still get this error message!
