    Default Unable to create check file "/fm106c5c.txt" [M3]

    Hi,

    I just installed formmail, and it works fine. But next to the real message I always receive an error message also. It says:
    Unable to create check file "/fm106c5c.txt" [M3]

    What have I done wrong? Can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    This indicates your PHP installation or web server environment is faulty.

    On Linux systems, the environment variable TMPDIR tells software where to create temporary files.

    On Windows systems, the environment variable is called TMP.

    Apparently on your system this is set to "/" instead of "/tmp".

    This is not correct.

    You should contact your hosting provider and ask them about this because it may affect other PHP scripts you install.

    For FormMail you can workaround this with the $SCRATCH_PAD setting, which is fully documented in formmail.php.

    In version 5.03, $SCRATCH_PAD is configured near line 2952.

    Hi,

    You might want read the doco for $SCRATCH_PAD again.

    You've provided a URL not a directory path, that's why it isn't working.

    Hi,

    A URL is something you type into a browser.

    A directory (also known as a folder on Windows) is part of the file system structure where you can store files.

    Your web site files are kept in a directory on the server. Do you know what the directory is?
