I simply were built with a fresh install of Joomla 1.5 and am attempting to use a component. In extension manager, I select the zip file from the componenent.

However, I continue getting this error

  • JFolder::create: Couldn't create directory
  • Component Install: Unsuccessful to produce directory.: "/Customers/bhappy/localhost/experiments/site/htdocs/administrator/components/com_portfolio"

What triggered individuals error? I'd the chmod for that components and tmp directory set to 777 but nonetheless getting exactly the same problem.

Thanks, Tee

I understand it's most likely a dumb question...

But have you look into the permissions on joomla/administrator/components? (instead of just joomla/components )
