[1.7] Cannot install any module via FTP


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

I tried to find a solution to this problem. I install one Prestashop 1.7 (last version) and when I upload a new module in the folder /modules by using FTP, I can't see it. 

 

It's working when I'm using the backoffice to upload it. Problem is I can't upload my own theme modules... 

 

If you have any ideas ! 

 

Thank you,

 

GJ

Hi,

It's  a common problem. You have to zip and upload the file via admin.

With the 1.6 , only uploading the files via FTP  makes it visible but with 1.7  it seems not  to work.

 

 

This is 2018 and it looks like this problem has not been fixed yet. This is basic. Prestashop should let us know if this is no longer possible to install through FTP rather than spending hours on this thinking the problem is with us.

You want a great solution... Don't use anymore Prestashop.

1.7 version is a nightmare, so many bugs.

If you begin your website, use another CMS. 

I think I listed 30 problems with no solution on 1.7 since July...

2020 - same here - increasing file upload size in BO seams to be the only way (and in php.ini) - this sucks because many modules exceed the standard 2MB file upload size - PS team work on that, installing vis FTP is vital 4us.

cheers

Installing via FTP should be no problem:

1. Upload the module folder into /modules on FTP
2. Go to Module Catalog in BO, find the module there and install

No, it doesn't work. I can't see any module which is not installed. Only active or deactivated. And no way to find it.... (Presta 1.7.7.0)

Check "Module-Catalog", not "Module-Manager" :)

Thanks, this works perfectly !

1- upload the module files into /modules (upload directly the files, not the .zip)

2- Go to BO > Modules > Modules Catalog

3- type a search word into the search bar

4- your module appears as "Free", click to the Install button to install!

Generally speaking I think there should be done something about tested, accepted & working solutions on the various issues we have to deal with, when working with prestashop- like this one for example. These should somehow stand out from the rest, like pinned on the top - with a numbers of votes counter on them.  I mean sometimes it is good and intuitive to read the whole conversation between members but most of the times this is not the case...

Of course the definite prerequisite is that people vote on the solution kindly offered to them..🙂

Just my two cents on this matter..

Merry X-mas everybody!

In these times people, Users are used to test Software. There are exceptions to that rule. New managers often bring new measures, if matured or not.

Merry Xmas to you too ;)
