I have a install of UBBThreads. [nofollow] [nofollow]
I have a 2.0.15 install of SMF. [nofollow] [nofollow]

I tried to install converter package without success.;id=11

I got the error found below.

So I followed the recommendations after the error and uploaded the 2 files manually to smf/Packages/converter and set the permissions to the folder and files as recommended.  Unfortunately the Package Manager doesn't recognize that its there.

Any help is appreciated.


(sorry, started a new post here in addition to being appended to an "old" UBBthreads converter discussion)


An Error Has Occurred!
Package upload failed due to the following error:
"Although the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the "temp" sub-directory are both writable. If you continue to experience this problem you should try extracting the package on your PC and uploading the extracted files into a subdirectory in your Packages directory and try again. For example, if the package was called shout.tar.gz you should:
1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.
2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your "Packages" folder, in this example you may call it "shout".
3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.
4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF."

You do not upload the convertor to the package manager. You place the convert files in the root directory of your forum to run them.
