Can't install Joomla 2.5 in web application

Post by Miskim » Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:11 pm

I'm trying to install joomla 2.5 from WAG but get the following error:

The application could not be installed:
- Error while install application pack
- Error while installing application package: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: input



There's nothing in the windows logs. Also tried to create mysql db first and then install but error is the same.

Which version of Joomla are you trying to install? 2.5.?
Which version of IIS are you running?
What errors were reported or difficulties experienced during installation of WAG? (Windows Web Application Gallery for anyone else!) / Web Matrix
Have you checked the Web Matrix Forums
Please run the Forum Post Assistant to provide the information to help us try and resolve the issue.
