can not upload a zipped package
« on: July 03, 2018, 08:35:55 AM »
I'm in the process of writing my first package and at first I got this error (package_get_error_is_zero), the important part is in bold,

Although the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the &quot;temp&quot; 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:<br />1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.<br />2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your &quot;Packages&quot; folder, in this example you may call it "shout".<br />3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.<br />4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF.

Because I had no package to start with, I followed what was written in the error and put my files inside a directory in 'Packages'. Now that I have something working (SMF is saying  'Success'), I put all files back inside a zip or tar.gz (the error stays the same) and maybe I am overlooking something obvious? It is my first package and others do work, I did verify that all files mentioned in the xml also exist in the package.

Please upload it here and we can take a look.
