Hello Souqalibaba,

Sorry for the "missing temporary folder" error in your WordPress site. This issue appears to be a problem with the theme that you are using. I would recommend that you speak with the theme developer/author in order to help fix the issue that you are seeing. You may also want to review this WordPress Codex post regarding Common WordPress errors.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.

Hello souqalibaba,

Sorry for the continued problems. This will require that our live support team look at your account, if you're having problems with a WordPress installation. I would recommend that you try using the Softaculous WordPress installation. I have not been able to duplicate the answer on a test site. I checked your account and you do have a support ticket submitted for the issue. Please work with our live technical support team as they can directly access your files to resolve the problem. This issue would not be resolved through the WordPress Admin.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
