Problem with installing mods.
« on: February 24, 2012, 08:59:19 AM »
Hi,
    I am running a forum at www.pkrack.tk/forum and was running smooth but today i was informed about an error with installing mods.
     When i download the mod, it is downloaded fine, then it passes the pre-install tests but when i click install, i get a "not found error by browser saying that page is not available.
       I checked the packages/temp directory and got that the package is unzipped in the directory but isnt installed.
       All files are correctly chmoded. Is there any mod with illegal filename? Last downloaded mod was named firewall which isnt installed. SMF is showing error with every mod. Any help / suggestion will be greatly appreciated

What is the exact error you're getting? Are you sure it's "not found" and not "Internal Server Error"?

I cleared cache , then went and manually uninstalled some mods which were uncompatible i.e affiliate mod , online offline mod etc . And it hopefully helped me. There is still a small problem that when i uninstall a mod, it isnt completely uninstalled but some code snippets in some files remains unremoved . I dont know how to solved that but as currently it isnt causing some serious problem currently so i am not focusing on its solution.
