I am running a Joomla 1.7.3 Site

Tried Installing Kunena utilizing the URL method and I erceive the following error!



JFolder::create: Could not create directory
Unknown Archive type

I have never had an issue on my site with permissions or size limits as I have multiple much larger Components installed. I did a search here but they were similar but not the same. Any assistance would be great!

G'day, The Chief, and welcome to Kunena.

I am sorry to hear that you are running a J! 1.7.3 site; we don't offer any supported versions of Kunena that run in J! 1.7 these days. The "unknown archive type" seems to be the clue here. What is the specific name of the file you are trying to install by the "install by URL" method. You may find that K 1.6 & K 1.7 Installation Guide has more information that helps you.
