Failed to transfer data. Make sure you are not trying to upload an empty folder.

I have installed a "fresh" version (2019.12.25) of FileRun under Virtualmin. Functionality seems to work fine, except for file uploads. I have tried having the user's home directory be both in the webroot and outside, with the same error. I am able to create directories, but not upload any file type. I get the following error message:

A problem has been encountered

Failed to transfer data. Make sure you are not trying to upload an empty folder.

I have tried multiple php versions. Currently running under 7.4.8.

Nothing shows up in syslog or web errorlog.

please help.

Under review

It's usually a PHP configuration error. Have you configured "upload_tmp_dir" with the path of an existing folder which PHP has permissions to write in?

same problem..but after 2 days without any configuration change on server (php or other)... re-install... work fine one day and again same problem... i don't understand why this problem apear...

I am having the same problem, it seem to come up more if the file size is larger than 4-5MB, smaller JPEGs seem to upload ok so doesn't seem to be a permission issue, I installed this last week and I don't recall any problems, but I removed it and reinstalled it again (onto a different domain but under the same hosting company so its a fresh setup),  now reinstalling it again onto the same webspace (I removed the domain from CP and recreated again for a clean start) I hit this error, seem very random,

Anyone have a solution to this ?

I got this error as well, is there any way to fix it?
