Hi,

I have Joomla 2.53 (localhost on my Macbook) and am trying to get the template installed as per the Guide.

-- After unzipping the purchased file I can see the joomlage0054-multiplex and mod_ImageSlideshow zip files within the Joomla 2.5 template files folder.

-- I can browse and select the above Package Files in Extension Manager, however the error message reads "Warning, Failed to move file!" when I click on Upload and Install.

Appreciate your help.
Thanks.

Hello,

The error you are referring to JFolder::create: Could not create directory Warning failed to move file! Error in Joomla is not Template related. It is a problem with your Joomla installation configuration.php file probably because you moved your installation from one location to another.

Solution
A: Goto the folder where your joomla installtion is. Click on the configuration.php file to open it.

2: Scroll down through the file until you find var $log_path, this contains the Directory path of your Old Server. Just replace the whole line with the code var $log_path = './logs';

3: Scroll down through the file until you find var $tmp_path, this also contains the Directory path to your Old Server. Replace the whole line with the code var $tmp_path = './tmp';

This should solve the issue with your Joomla installation and allow you to proceed and install your templates and modules.

Hi John,

Made the edits as suggested above but still the same error. Tracing further it seems to me the issue is that the Joomla Directory Permissions are all set to Unwritable. Is that a probable cause?

I've made sure the Mac file permissions for the Joomla folder (and all enclosed) are set to Read and Write; trying (as a newbie!) to work out how to make change within Joomla.

Thanks for your help.

John,

Further to the last post, the overnight change is that with nothing further on my part all the directory permissions changed to writable...EXCEPT for $log_path.

However the template has uploaded, so success!.

Regards.

Having the same issue but when I looked through my configuration file I didn't either of the lines of code. Also my Joomla Permissions are unwritable is there any way of changing this???

Thanks in Advance,
Ian
