Unfortunately, that's normal.

What's suppose to happen is the SMF creates that folder to use to unpack the mod. After it's done the folder gets deleted. But due to some configuration in your server, SMF is unable to create that temp folder. But it can still delete it.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

Is this for the one mod or do you have the same problem with other mods?

Do they install fine on your local server?

Who are you hosted with?

Then, I would suggest that you get him to look into this problem.

Since something ain't quite right there and he's the most qualified person to look into this.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

ok i will tell him to look it..

but in the Administrator>package manager>file permissions all the files are "writable" except "sources" that are all the files in this folder is "Not Writable"


Maybe this is the problem and the mods cant work?

It could be. Try making it writable. Use the FTP client and set the permissions to be the same as the other folders.

Hmm, defiantly contact your friend about this. Things won't work properly if the Sources folder is unwritable.

It does look to me like there's a permissions or ownership problem with that folder.

Rather than re-installing. rename it and then re-upload the Sources folder from the install package.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

No, the idea is to replace the existing Sources folder with a fresh one. In order to do that the original folder needs to be renamed to something other than "Sources".

when you tell fresh one...?
you mean to take the "sources" folder from the smf 2.0.2 version .zip?

or to copy the "sources" folder that i have already install in the forum and just re-upload it? :P


sorry for the many questions :)

Option 1. :P

Since there seems to be a problem with the current folder. Rename it so it's not being used by SMF and then re-upload the Sources folder from the 2.0.2 install package. If you don't have a copy you can download it from here
