This is a very stupid question but how can we set up /var/tmp? Is there a special way to do it or will just creating the directory suffice?

Like /tmp, it should have the sticky bit set so that files can only be delete by their owner, and it should be world-writable:

mkdir /var/tmp && chmod 01777 /var/tmp
