ERROR — FAILED TO CREATE TEMP DIRECTORY /HOME/.WEBMIN-1008-XXXXXX

When a virtualmin user signs in and tries to use the File Manager, they just get the following;

ERROR — FAILED TO CREATE TEMP DIRECTORY /HOME/.WEBMIN-1008-XXXXXX

I checked multiple users and they are all the same. Works as the main admin.

Status: 
Active
Virtualmin version: 
6.16
Webmin version: 
1.973

Hi,

This is expected as regular user has no permissions to write to /home directory. Do not use /home for tmp files!
