I'm with Hostroute.com at the moment. They've been great, but with one really annoying exception. The php installations that they run on their servers do not have upload_tmp_dir set in the php.ini. This means there is no temporary directory to upload to.
I have customers who want web based content management to upload images and text for new stock items. This is not possible using php without having a temporary directory to upload to.
If anyone has any advice I'd be grateful.
By the way if anyone is thinking of using hostroute.com, as long as my problem is of no consequence to you, then I can recommend them. Ridiculously cheap and also reliable. They just have a very crappy PHP configuration
