This means you don't have permission to write the tmp files to /tmp. Some hosts will disable this so its not unusual. In this case you should create a 'silverstripe-cache' folder in the root folder of your silverstripe installation and make sure that has read / write permissions from the webserver. Then visit your site again with a ?flush=1 on the end.
