Cannot install MetaTemplate ?

Cannot install MetaTemplate ?

Installing MetaTemplate 1-5c causes the following error to be thrown:

JFolder::create: Could not create directory
Warning! Failed to move file.

Not too sure where to look to figure this one out.

Re: Cannot install MetaTemplate ?

Hi jethrocne,

If this is happening during installation, then it's most likely to be a Joomla setup/permissions problem rather than a MetaTemplate problem.

Can you check your Help->System Info page on your site's administrator section, and take a look at the "directory permissions" tab? This should give you some idea about which folders are writable or not.

Also, try installing some other extension (e.g free download of MetaMod from this site) and see if the same error occurs. MetaMod is a good example because it has a 100% standard installation procedure, so if that doesn't work, then nothing will!

Cheers,
Stephen
