This one comes and goes since 2008.

Why oh why didn't anyone kill that one with fire?

I am getting this problem too !! on the same server I have SS2.4 installed with no problems but SS3.0.1 giving me this same error. Its not detecting the silverstripe-cache folder at all !!! .. so I edited that getTempFolder() in install.php5to just:
$ssTmp = dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) . '/silverstripe-cache';
return $ssTmp;

after this it all works fine :D

Hi guys,

I've fixed an issue where tiny_mce_gzip.php used the sys temp path instead of the local silverstripe-cache.

It's awaiting merge on Github as a pull request here:

Hopefully this should help in more restrictive hosting situations!

You can use the _ss_environment.php file to declare a new folder.
This way you don't have to compromise any of the code in the framework and you don't get into trouble after upgrading.
Just add

define('TEMP_FOLDER',__DIR__ . '/www/silverstripe-cache');

if you have your website running from the /www folder and you created a folder /silverstripe-cache in the /www dir.
