i cant even upload the module. i purchased the hot cosmetics template and uploaded it. next is this mod but i cant get joomla to accept the zip via extensions upload. i get "Warning! Failed to move file."

i also tried unzipping it and uploading into the "mod_" folder in the ftp but that didnt work either. i really need help :sick:

the site is stellarinskin.com/

Make sure all folders of your Joomla are chmod 755. Make sure that you have correct paths for LOGS and TMP in configuration.php. Can you install any other module?

You must login to your site using FTP software and CHMOD (change permissions) of all FOLDERS to 755 and of all files to 644. Ask your hosting provider for help if you don't know how to do it. For this operation, I recommend FileZilla.

Also, check paths in your configuration.php file that I mentioned previously.

ok all permissions to the folders and files were already set correctly. folders 755 and files 644.

as far as the paths are concerned, i looked in the configuration.php and made the following changes:

var $log_path = '/hsphere/local/home/vbleus/stellarinskin.com/logs';
var $tmp_path = '/hsphere/local/home/vbleus/stellarinskin.com/tmp';

to:
var $log_path = '/logs';
var $tmp_path = '/tmp';

if you were to look at the root folder of my ftp, theres only 1 folder called "stellarinskin.com" and in there was the index.php homepage. thats why i renamed the paths the way i did. not sure if it was the right thing. i tried then to reload the ratator mod zip and got this error:

Module Install: Another module is already using directory: "/hsphere/local/home/vbleus/stellarinskin.com/modules/mod_hot_effects_rotator"

attached is a screenshot of my ftp

Please use FTP to remove this folder /hsphere/local/home/vbleus/stellarinskin.com/modules/mod_hot_effects_rotator and also file /hsphere/local/home/vbleus/stellarinskin.com/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_hot_effects_rotator.ini

Then try to install again.
