I know this has been mentioned before, all fine on install but get

User 'xxxxxx.co.uk' needs to be able to write to this file:
/tmp/silverstripe-cache

I've tried all the - change line etc to

function getTempFolder() {
$sysTmp = sys_get_temp_dir();
$worked = true;
$ssTmp = "/silverstripe-cache";

Done that but still get same error.

Any help really appreciated!!!

The easiest way to get around tmp permissions is to manually create a 'silverstripe-cache' folder in your site root directory and give that read write access.

Thanks for that, but still not working. Still get this error:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
User 'cmpe-sussex.co.uk' needs to be able to write to this file:
/tmp/silverstripe-cache

The file is currently owned by 'macs-software.co.uk'. There is no user-group that contains both the web-server user and the owner of this file. Change the ownership of the file, create a new group, or temporarily make the file writeable by everyone during the install process.

Ive created a 'silverstripe-cache' & 'temp/silverside-cache' both with 666

SOLVED
started again. Didn't create s 'silverside-cache' dir, just changed install.php5 line 727 from

$ssTmp = "$sysTmp/silverstripe-cache";

to

$ssTmp = "/silverstripe-cache";
