Error Msg: "Module Install: Another module is already using

Postby maanojrakhit » Tue Jul 06, 2010 12:57 pm

Using Extension Manager >> Install option successfully installed hi-IN_joomla_lang_site.1.5.15 and one of the following two (a) mod_indicwriter_pramukh-admin.1.0.0 (b) mod_indicwriter_google-admin.1.0.0

Now that I attempt to install the one which is left I get an error message
"Module Install: Another module is already using directory: "/home/mrakhit/public_html/joomla/administrator/modules/mod_indicwriter"

I tried it many times, even after logging out and later logging in, over past few hours but error msg keeps coming.

I am also not able to get the language selector dropdown list.

What should I do? Help requested.

Hi,

If possible , Please uninstall the module and reinstall.
If you can't uninstall the module , then please go modules->mod_indicwriter and delete the moduel mod_indicwriter.
After that install.

Thanks

@ shibu

It didn't work. Same situation continues. Same error message keeps coming.

I deleted mod_indicwriter from Module Manager as you suggested.

When re-installation did not work, I even logged out and logged in and then tried to install again through Extensions >> Install.

When that did not work, I tried altering the sequence of installation between the two (a) mod_indicwriter_pramukh-admin.1.0.0 (b) mod_indicwriter_google-admin.1.0.0

I have the similar issue. Please HELP !!!

I installed a module and component. Then i decided to reinstall them.
So, i uninstalled the component and delayed the module.

But, if i try to install them again, the component was installing fine, but the module said "Module Install: Another module is already using directory: ..."

I checked the module and couldn`t find any installed. Please, how i can fix it ?
Where i can find "already using directory" ?

Please HELP !!!

Simply deleting the module files does not mean that you have uninstalled the module. Also, simply deleting a module in the Module Manager does not mean that you have uninstalled the module - all you have done is to delete an instance of the module.

To uninstall a module, go to Extension Manager, click on the tab Modules, choose the module and click on the icon titled Uninstall.

You should try to uninstall the component and module before installing them again.

It seems some glitches with Feedback component installation script.

Now only one way left. Open FTP (or use extplorer) and delete 'mod_feedback' folder from the 'modules' directory. And reinstall component.

You can ask your host to setup FTP. Better install - http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... ement/2630 and access all files from your joomla admin.
