Hello Rajesh,

Please help me to clarify your problem.

  1. Does the export (.zip) contain the subfolders and files from the “/plugins/“ and “/themes” folders?
  2. Does the import (.zip) create the subfolders and files in the “/plugins/“ and “/themes” folders?
  3. Have you logged out and logged back in to trigger plugin registration after importing?
  4. Have you activated the new theme?

Thank you

Hi Weigo, I am having the same issue as Rajesh.

I installed EXPORT and IMPORT plugins on two OctoberCMS sites. On the first site, I exported my custom plugins and theme to zip using the EXPORT plugin. On the second site I imported the same files using the IMPORT plugin.

When I import the plugins, the screen loads and refreshes, but there are no visible messages, the plugins do not get installed, and there are no event logs.

When I import the theme, after the page refreshes I receive a red error banner stating "Error Extracting Archive".

The import plugin does not appear to work. Though, the EXPORT plugin does seem to work.

Thoughts?

Hello Jeff,

I will get back to you on this issue tomorrow!

To produce the error "Error Extracting Archive" when importing your theme:

  1. You are inside the if code block at line 129 of briddle/import/controllers/Upload.php
  2. The plugin then attempts to move the uploaded archive to the folder themes/
  3. The plugin then tries to open the zip file inside themes/ to extract it but fails, producing this error

So either the zip archive was written to the folder themes/ (you should see it there) and there is a problem opening it or the zip archive was never written to the folder themes/.

Can you confirm your zip archive is placed in the folder themes/? (Do the same for plugins.)

Thank you!
