HELP!! Can't create/write to file '/root/tmp/#sql_121b_0.MYI' (Errcode: 13)
Posted 09 September 2006 - 10:27 PM
Then I got phpmyadmin up and running I had an error message when trying to create a table in a database. The message was:
#1 - Can't create/write to file '/root/tmp/#sql_121b_0.MYI' (Errcode: 13)
Every time I select the "structure, select or insert" tabs this message appears.
However I can use the "browse or sql" tabs.
I've looked in the online phpmyadmin manual which says that this is a file permissions problem. (http://dev.mysql.com...ermissions.html) I did as it suggested but I still have the same problem.
I've tried running phpmyadmin from the root, but I still get the same error message. I'd be really grateful if anyone could help me with this problem.

You can either give user "mysql" write access to the directory or preferably set another directory to be used.
To verify any of this you may want to run the following query if allowed and after confirming what MYSQL options are using the directory change them.
Post any options that have /root/tmp as part of their dir path.
