Packages temp folder deletes itself?

While having another issue, that seemed to have fixed itself over the last few days, I read that there's supposed to be a \Packages\temp directory. After creating and chmodding it myself a couple times, whenever I go back into the FTP, the folder is gone. Does SMF itself recreate/delete the folder, or do I need something like this: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=724 ?


It always does so, and has always done so.

The folder is not generally supposed to exist most of the time - it is a temporary folder as indicated by the name, and under normal circumstances it is created as needed and later removed. Some specific hosting configurations prevent it being created on demand, though.

If you manually have to create it, you probably should install that mod to stop it being removed after.

Thanks. :) If the other issue I was having crops up again next update, then I'll look into it, but if it continues to work fine now then I won't mess with it. lol
