Postby jimivision » Wed Dec 03, 2008 8:04 pm

i just installed a fresh copy of joomla 1.5.8 and uploaded everything to the ftp site. now i want to add some components and templates and this is the error message i get.


* JFolder::create: Could not create directory
* Component Install: Failed to create directory.: [b]/usr/home/sites/www.creativeideasrus.com/web/administrator/components/com_jce"

i've got every permission i can find set to 777, but it's not solving the problem.

Can you provide the link again. For some reason, it doesn't seem to work. There are others who may benefit later with your pointer.

Hi ryadavalli,

I will type the link because when I tried to put the link in the reply again it did look the same. So here it is:

STEPS
Unzip Mod_**** folder

Copy the Mod_**** folder to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\joomla\modules\ directory
(where: http://localhost/joomla opens your site homepage )

Login to Back-end of your Joomla site (using http://localhost/joomla/administrator )

Goto Extension Manager
Click Discover ( for joomla site app to find newly added module in its module directory)
Click the discovered new extension
Click Install (to install the new module)

I have tried it for modules installation

My Regards
