Unable to detect manifest file.

Post by Matt Bourne » Mon Dec 05, 2022 7:59 am

Hi

I'm used Joomla for quite some years now, and normally this kind of error is because the developer forgot to unzip their extension, thus Joomla can't detect the XML file to initiate the installation

This is the graphical error image https://prnt.sc/4sB_HhyYcHh0

The extension that i tried to install is tested working fine with localhost joomla, shouldn't need to be unzipped

Thank you in advance

Session Path Writable: No
.htaccess/web.config: No

is this normal for these 2 values left to no?

Session Path Writable: No ... Should be Yes. Speak to your Host
Joomla will work without renaming htaccess.txt to .htaccess but there are advantages of renaming it.
Max. Upload Size: 2M | Max. POST Size: 8M ... make both 64M or 128M

As you have purchased this extension from Joomshaper then you should ask them for support - thats what you paid for.
