Can confirm that this issue persists on 2.4 (stable)

Some more info on this subject:

On SilverStripe 2.4, please see the following files:

- cms/code/AssetAdmin.php Line 224

There is a check for open_basedir, and if it is set, the uploaded files are moved to SilverStripe's temp directory (no longer system temp).

- sapphire/filesystem/Upload.php Line 464

There is the following code "!is_uploaded_file($this->tmpFile['tmp_name'])". As some people may be aware, "is_uploaded_file()" checks to see if the uploaded file is the system temp directory. Obviously this will fail because of the open_basedir code above.

It's definitely a bug in SilverStripe and should be fixed.

Anybody want to open a bug report?

I would love to see this issue dealt with... right now it is a key issue stopping me from delivering to a client.

The exact same problem bugs me, I have had to resort to giving all content editors full admin-rights...

thx for the patch - it saved me a lot of time!
I was not able to upload at all on one of the hosting we use. i've set DataObjectManager::allow_assets_override(false); but still no luck. with the patch it works with CTF but upload with DOM still fails. this happens with sstr 2.4.2 dom414 swf 401.
