Joomla Component Install – Unable to Find Install Package

Symptoms:

Joomla 1.5 fresh install was working fine and was able to install and uninstall mods, extensions templates, etc. just fine. After a few days of set up,  modifying my templates and adjusting my Global Settings, I was not able to upload any modules, extensions, templates, etc. and continuously received the ‘Unable to Find Install Package’. This was not a legacy issue.

The Solution:

During my setup, I had enabled my FTP but later turned it off in my Global Settings. However, what I discovered was that my FTP was not actually ‘turning off’. When I would deactivate it, and save my settings, the next time that I logged into my Global Settings, it would be back on. To resolve this, I went directly into my configuration.php file and manually adjusted the FTP settings.

var $ftp_enable = ’0′;
var $ftp_host = ”;
var $ftp_port = ”;
var $ftp_user = ”;
var $ftp_pass = ”;
var $ftp_root = ”;

So, in short — try adjusting your FTP settings directly in your configuration.php file.

I hope this helps someone else!
