I'm using Joomla 1.7.2, and have just bought the DJ-sailing template. I have unzipped the downloaded package on my home computer. On the server installation I have gone to Extension Manager: Install, and tried uploading the package file com_djinstaller.zip but it says it cannot move the file.

I then unzipped com_djinstaller.zip and moved all of its contents to a temporary directory on the website server using filezilla. I then tried the 'Install from directory' option, but this also failed, with the message

Component Install: Another component is already using directory: /home/bbelle/public_html/a/administrator/components/com_djinstaller

but the template does not appear in the Template Manager.

I've tried deleting the ../components/com_djinstaller directory in order to start over, but I cannot delete it - permission denied!

Hi,

All the problems relates to Joomla version.
DJ-Sailing does not work with Joomla 1.7, it's for Joomla 1.5 only.

Aha!. I must remember to read the small print always. The site isn't built yet, so I shall try installing Joomla 1.5. Thank you for the quick response.

why small print?
it's marked on demo site mear template name -> demo.joomla-monster.com/50-dj-sailing
and below the big image -> www.joomla-monster.com/sport/dj-sailing-sport-template.html

The best solution is installing quickstart to get the exact copy of our demo site. -> www.joomla-monster.com/faq/what-is-a-quickstart.html

Izabela, thank you.
My reference to small print was a joke (against myself). Anyway, I've installed Joomla 1.5, which has accepted the dj-sailing template, so all is well.
Bye.
