Errors during installation

Server file upload limit block the installation

Some server has small file upload limit in the php.ini configuration. This causes, that you can not upload the installer to the server by the Joomla installer. In this case try the alternative installation method or try to increase the limit in php.ini

upload_max_filesize =10M
post_max_size =10M

Some folders not writeable

This happens usually if FTP and PHP are running by different owner on the Linux server and you uploaded your site by FTP and PHP do not have right to write into the directories. We suggest in this case to configure the FTP mode in SystemGlobal configurationServerFTP Settings

Alternative installation method

  • Step 1: Unzip the installer package into your computer
  • Step 2: Upload the unzipped (com_nextend_installer) folder into your Joomla tmp/ folder
  • Step 3: Go to your admin area Extensions -> Manage -> Install from folder tab
  • Step 4: Complete the prefilled(your site absolute path/tmp) install directory with /com_nextend_installer and hit Install

On successful installation, you can start using the module in the Extensions -> Modules -> Nextend Accordion Menu V9
