TROOBLESHOOTING "Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package."

Cause:
Our plugin and module who used JW Player include a large amount of skins, this increase the size of the package, Some servers have size limitation for uploading file, here is three solution to by-pass this server issue.


Solution 1. Modify your php.ini --> upload_max_filesize > 4MO

  1. You can check php.ini value in the Joomla administration, go to Help--> System Info, then to the PHP Information tab.
  2. Search for the variable upload_max_filesize and check both its Local Value and Master Value.
  3. It should be at 4M or higher, if it is not edit/modify/save/upload your php.ini at this value.

Solution 2. If you don't have access to your php.ini file, Modify your .htaccess --> upload_max_filesize > 4MO

  1. You can check php.ini value in the Joomla administration, go to Help--> System Info, then to the PHP Information tab.
  2. Search for the variable upload_max_filesize and check both its Local Value and Master Value.
  3. It should be at 4M or higher, if it is not edit/modify/save/upload your .htaccess at this value.
    The .htaccess is place at the webroot of the joomla directory.
    You just have to edit it and add the end of the file (with notepad ++ for example) the line :
    php_value upload_max_filesize 10M

Solution 3. If you can't modify your php.ini or your .htaccess, please use the Install Directory Method instead the normal Method.

  1. On your server create a directory under /tmp called jwplayer.
  2. Unzip locally on your PC the extension zip package.
  3. Via ftp upload the unzipped contents to that directory /tmp/jwplayer.
  4. Go to extensions-->Install/Uninstall.
  5. Install from Directory-->Install Directory: you will see a pathway to your tmp directory;
    for example /web/sites/public_html/tmp add "/jwplayer" to the end
    so it would read for example: /web/sites/public_html/tmp/jwplayer
  6. Click on the install file, That's All Folks !
