So I'm trying to upload a simple template I made and I keep getting this error. The full error code is this:

JInstaller: :Install: File does not exist /home/guardi20/public_html/tmp/install_4d97508909c69/html

I've checked over my files in the template and there's nothing I can see that's obvious, so I don't think it's that. Also the error seems to be pointing to something on my server directories somewhere.

I've uploaded the zip for you to look at so you can kill me for obvious coding errors, but is this something to do with my Joomla install itself?

Hey dude I was having the same error when trying to install my template. I discovered this workaround:

Provided your template is sound (I copied the atomic template and read this):

* ftp your template to the templates folder as in 1.5
* in joomla, navigate to extensions > extension manager
* choose 'discover' from the menu
* hit 'discover' from the icons in the top right, keep hitting it a few times if you get nothing
* choose to install the template when it appears

Hope this helps

I was having this same issue till I realized something. If you follow the error path its saying that it cannot find a "folder" named HTML in your template route. Hence the path: File does not exist /home/guardi20/public_html/tmp/install_4d97508909c69/html

Joomla creates a temporary folder (in your case "install_4d97508909c69") but then uses the .xml file to locate the rest. If your templateDetails.xml is declaring a folder named HTML and there is no such folder then it will give you this error.

Hope that helps.

P.S. I guess it doesn't necessarily have to be a folder. It cold be a file. But the idea is the same. Check your .xml file.

I found this issue to be a result of the LOCATION of the xml file. The <file> is relative to the location of the xml file. Hard to describe it, but I hope this helps.

I found you also get this when you specify a folder in the xml, but you leave the folder empty.

You can resolve this in two ways:

1. by creating an empty index.html in the folder

2. by removing the empty folder from the templateDetails.xml file

I didn't try that. Hope it works too.
And there is an another way - just copy your template's files to /tmp/, then click "install" button from right of a second cell (Install from Directory). I've managed it just so.

I had the trouble that I had accidentally put a copy of the xml file inside the admin/ folder in addition to in the root folder
Maybe this happened to you too? Just delete it and it works fine!
