When trying to install a new Component, Module, Template or Plugin using Joomla! 1.5 I receive the following error

JFolder::create: Could not create directory

Warning! Failed to move file.

Question: How do I solve this?


To solve this issue access the configuration.php file in the root folder where your Joomla! files are located.

Open the configuration.php file and look for the following lines

var $log_path = '/usr/home/web/joomla/logs';

var $tmp_path = '/usr/home/web/joomla/tmp';

Make sure the paths to the logs and tmp folder is correct.

Change it to something like below and the error message should disappear

var $log_path = './logs';

var $tmp_path = './tmp';
