When I try to use the displayDate helper I get this error:

Could not determine temp directory, please specify a cache_dir manually

I suspect it is some issue with caching (shared hosting env), but I can't figure out how to specificy a cache_dir or disable the cache.

Re: Cache problem when using displayDate
Was able to solve this, so here is a solution if others come upon this.
Zend_Locale has caching enabled and it expects to find the /tmp folder to store cache. On my shared environment, I don't have /tmp, so am setting a new cache dir in bootstrap.

protected function _initLocale()
array('cache_dir' => '/home/foo/private/tmp_zend')

Seems to work.
