You need to use a library to do it.
There is POSIX for unix systems (which I recommend)
But there is also lfs (luafilesystem)

Subject: Creating a directory in a lua script


I need to create a temporary directory in a lua script, but I couldn't
find any information on how to do that.  Since this is supposed to be a
standalone script, I cannot use a function from the C-library, I guess.

Can someone give me a pointer?
