Daily Message, updated for Joomla! 1.5

Post by jlleblanc » Wed Aug 22, 2007 6:27 pm

A copy of the Daily Message component tutorial for Joomla! 1.5 is now available at http://www.jlleblanc.com/joomla/Tutoria ... mla_1%115/ . An installable copy of the component is available for download so you can click through as you read along. Much like the original tutorial, it takes you through a complete create, read, update, delete component along with some configuration parameters.

Feedback is welcome!

Why do I get:

        * Warning! - Failed to move file

Unable to find install package

I've set permissions on components to 777, which is excessive, and still no luck...

I see I'm not the only one with this general problem:

Thanks for pointing this out. I had it working on RC1, but when I try to install it on RC2, it's giving me a file permission error as well; it can't read the XML file. It appears that regardless of the permissions of the tmp folder and the permissions of the files in the .zip, the XML file permissions get reset to 0640. This could be the server setup, or it could be something else.

I tried it again and it seems to work when I upload it without the FTP layer, but with writable components directories. The bizarre thing is that the FTP isn't doing it right even though I'm using username that owns all of the files in the directory. Could be an FTP configuration issue  :-\

interesting. maybe the ftp itself is not having enough authory level to do its job ? would the joomla ftp layer be having the same access level as the host installed FTP ? i don't think so and this is probably what the ftp layer is facing.
