Yes, it is clear now and with owner root, it works.
I propose to make this optional, as somebody has /tmp optimized for
better speed (another disk device, flash device, RAM disk etc.) but not
And FreeBSD doesn't have /var/lib by default. /var/lib/* is mostly used
by some Linux distributions). I am not sure if it is the right place to
put these files, according to man hier(7).
Next thing to think about is, that /tmp is (or easily can be) cleared at
system startup, but /var/*/* not.
If we do some change in default php.ini, it affects more then just
"files are moved to another place", so things need to be done carefully.
Maybe leave the default as is and put these hardening steps in comments
in php.ini, then anybody can make own decision.
