strange installation problem

Post by pslane » Mon Aug 15, 2011 2:10 am

I have 2 Joomla websites and I am able to install an extension on one but the other one says "failed to move file" when I try to install it. ??? What settings could I have different on the one that won't install? I just hope that it's a matter of incorrect settings.

Thanks,
pslane

Mostly it is due to wrong file permissions or wrong path for the tmp & log directories. Review of the following documents could be of help.

Turns out I didn't need to load the extension, although it looks like a good extension (attachment 2.2)

I have discovered how to insert a link to a downloadable zipped file in my article by just using extplorer and loading the zip file to FTP and linking to that. :D So I didn't have to use an extension after all.

I will still need to check the permissions in case I need an extension, etc. in the future. Thanks for the links.
