Don't do this :
1. mkdir /var/lib/mysql/tmp
2. chmod mysql:mysql /var/lib/mysql/tmp
3. Add the following line into the [mysqld] section: tmpdir = /var/lib/mysql/tmp
4. Restart the server

But do :
1. mkdir /tmp/mysql
2. chmod 777 /tmp/mysql
3. chown mysql:mysql /tmp/mysql
4. vi /etc/my.cnf and add in [mysqld section] : tmpdir = /tmp/mysql
5. /etc/init.d/mysql restart or /etc/init.d/mysqld restart to restart mysql-server
