In continuation to my previous question https://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/208245/openatrium-installation-profile-error

I have another problem in the very next step i.e. during Site Configuration.

  • Firstly the theme seems to have broken because CSS is not being applied.

  • Secondly, I'm getting the error message.

    "Warning: file_put_contents(temporary://fil3BF3.tmp): failed to open stream: "DrupalTemporaryStreamWrapper::stream_open" call failed in file_unmanaged_save_data() (line 1936 of \includes\file.inc).

    •The file could not be created."

I understand from some other posts that this is due to missing permissions on "sites/default/files" folder. But this folder is created on the fly during installation how do we give access to it. In addition, I believe another possible cause can be due to permissions to "tmp" folder. Most of the other posts mention changing that path in "Admin -> configuration" somewhere, but for that OpenAtrium needs to be completely installed. Where can I change the path for "tmp" file through file system.

Appreciate a reply.

Where can I change the path for "tmp" file through file system.

You can set the tmp path by appending the following line in the site settings.php

$conf['file_temporary_path'] = '/tmp';

In Addition, all item stored in variable table in Drupal site's database can be set with $conf array in the same way.

  • Thanks for the reply, is this path relative to settings.php ? Commented Jul 27, 2016 at 4:20
  • It's relative to the root directory of Drupal.
