Re: NOT SOLVED YET: Unable to Find Install Package

Hi, I need help. It's been a few days and I've tried your suggestion. I hasn't worked for me. I'm still getting an error message. On a Linux Server, Joomla 1.5 (fresh install) Trying to install components, modules and plugins. Everything was working fine until I tried to install Sobi2 components and Ja Social Template. I'm thinking that I may have reached a limit or something.

Here are my settings:

Path to Tmp folder: /home/username/public_html/tmp

Config.ini

var $xmlrpc_server = '0';
var $log_path = '/home/xxxxwomen/public_html/logs';
var $tmp_path = '/home/xxxxwomen/public_html/tmp';
var $live_site = '';
var $force_ssl = '0';
var $offset = '0';
var $caching = '0';
var $cachetime = '15';
var $cache_handler = 'file';
var $memcache_settings = array();
var $ftp_enable = '1';
var $ftp_host = '127.0.0.1';
var $ftp_port = '21';
var $ftp_user = '';
var $ftp_pass = '';
var $ftp_root = '';
var $dbtype = 'mysql';
var $host = 'localhost';
var $user = 'xxxxuaewomen_jo151';
var $db = 'xxxuaewomen_jo151'

Global Settings:
Enable FTP Yes
FTP Host 127.0.0.0.1
FTP Port: 21
FTP Username
FTP Password:
FTP Root:

All Files in Public_html Permissions set to 755 and 777
All Files in ..../tmp set to 777

Any help that you can provide would be great!

Can somebody please walk me through this? Sounds like a sure fix but it's not working for me. I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong.

First of all I have 1.7 installed on Godaddy.
I get the same "Unable to Find Install Package" every time without fail. I've tried a number of things I've read about but don't know if I am doing it correctly.

One thing to mention is that my configuration.php file says "public" not "var" in front of the FTP settings. I don't understand what to do here. I've tried changing the settings as described but it makes no different.

I've also changed the max upload from 2mb to 10mb but it hasn't actually changed anything.

Please help out a new user. I really want to like Joomla but wow is this whole process ever full of holes compared to wordpress.

Which one should I upload? Each time I try to install a file I see the following message:
JFolder::create: Infinite loop detected

I'm also getting this "Failed to Move File" on trying to intsall extensions and I also got a similar message ehen trying to add Media.

Do we know what the problem is and how to rectify it?

Most Joomla installs/hosting providers do not require you to set up FTP for your Joomla site.
Ref the above post just found another thread with the following......

Make sure your folders are set to 755 and files are 644:

Tutorial on permissions:

As a Linux virgin I just need to decipher what is means

dannycool wrote:Excellent it worked for me. I got so worried that another prob to solve. This type of prob happened for the first time because of permission issues on the server. I installed a QUICK LAUNCH TEMPLATE and had to manually copy and paste the code that the setup gave into the config.php to create the config manually. Because I did that, the server didn't allow the ftp permissions so that I can upload joomla extensions in the backend and thats why i got the error. So as this tutorial says, go into your config.php and write in the FTP info like here on mine:

In config.php
var $ftp_enable = '1';
var $ftp_host = '174.142.##the rest of the number';
var $ftp_port = '21';
var $ftp_user = 'your user name';
var $ftp_pass = ' your password';
var $ftp_root = 'public_html';



This is the Only one that worked for me from allll solutions written before in this topic. Thnx

This happened to me and it turned out to be the template file size. There are two fixes; either reduce the template to under 2MB, or unzip the template package, manually copy this folder to the server, and install it from there using the 'Install from Directory' tool.

I had the same problem — unable to install anything successfully after upgrading to PHP 5.3. The problem finally was solved on two sites after I updated the Joomla. One site was running Joomla 1.5.1 and the other was running Joomla 1.5.6. I updated both to 1.5.26 and now all is working.

You've probably already tried this, but did you try to install from within the tmp folder? Unzip the files on your computer, then upload through FTP to the tmp folder. Then go into Extensions and select the install from tmp option. Good luck. If this doesn't work, you might want to give more information on what version of Joomla you are running.

thanks for reply Spell,
yeah i have also tried this. I also tried upload files in their folder such modules and component ftp and then install form extension.because while installation form extension some time it says bla bla folder could not be created etc. But no helps.
I'm using joomla 2.5.8 online.I think this might be the problem of safe mode..i.e. on in my site..do you think so...

Thanks for reply once again..

Hi Depak, I've never worked in safe mode, but that sounds like it could certainly be the problem.
