I had a PMR opened for a long time now, because on my personal Quickr 8.5.1 Vmware machines (SLES and CentOS), I had the really annoying problem that I couldn’t upload attachments anymore. Now that’s a really basic function of Quickr, so it really annoyed me.

The solution came from support today, and it was a surprisingly simple solution : the notes user (running Domino) didn’t have write access to the /tmp directory.

Give the notes user rwx access to /tmp (chmod 777 /tmp does the trick nicely) and the problem is solved.

I almost felt very stupid there, that I didn’t spot this myself. But it never occured to me to look there - by default, /tmp is writeable to all users in Linux ….

Anyway, very happy that this is solved for me :-)
