I've been unable to get anything installed to Joomla from the Extension Manager.

Is it possible to just copy the files into the correct directory? or is there an alternative way to get these installed?

Thanks

Check you global settings and see if you have the ftp mode enabled.  if so, disable it. It can sometimes cause problems like that (at least it does for me)

See if you have the ftp mode enabled and just upload ftp to the appropriate administrator/components/com_installer/directoryname then go to installer in J! admin and and install from the directory (not the local directory). I am having the same problem and this worked for me. I think this is also verified elsewhere in this forum...do a search. I can't if there was something else to do or the path is completely correct, but I think it is.

If you cant get any thing installed its normally a sign that your temp folder in config is setup incorrectly as the files while being extracted have no place to go.

Make sure permissions are set correctly on the /tmp folder which you can find in configuration.php

Some modules and plugins can be copied directly into the correct folders on the server and when you click on module manager and click new they sometimes appear in the list to be used but if they require database interaction they wont work.

Solve the permissions issue and see what going wrong

Have a look at

Admin backend > help > system info > directory permissions and make sure all are green and say writable

Storm

IF they dont work copy paste the list in here and ill tell you which folder is broken and what permissions to set it to on the server
