Thanks for this Information.

but I have also the Problem that I dont have the permission to create a folder on my root dir.

I have also ask my WebHoster and he advise my to change the tmp folder in the code to "/var/www/web55/phptmp/" and I have no idea how to change it ;).

I got a similar problem.

The error message was:

[User Error] Uncaught Zend_Cache_Exception: cache_dir is not writable
GET /login/admin?flush

Line 208 in /[...]/sapphire/thirdparty/Zend/Cache.php


# Zend_Cache::throwException(cache_dir is not writable)
Line 156 of File.php
# Zend_Cache_Backend_File->setCacheDir(/tmp/,)
Line 122 of File.php

I fixed it with this line in my _config:

// workaround to get ZF cache in the right folder
$_ENV['TMPDIR'] = dirname(__FILE__)."/../silverstripe-cache";
