Hi all,

I recently tried to install an extension after moving the site to an other server.
Problem is, when I try to install it, I get an error like this:

downloading IG_CashOnDelivery-1.0.6.tgz ...
Starting to download IG_CashOnDelivery-1.0.6.tgz (9,727 bytes)
. . ...done: 9,727 bytes
ERROR: failed to mkdir /home/outlet/public_html/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/ig_cashondelivery

While ‘outlet’ is the OLD username on the previous server, but I can’t seem to change that /home/ path to the new username…

Anyone knows?



It means your directory is not writable. You need to reset your permissions on your downloader folder to 777
