Errors during installation

Server file upload limit blocks the installation

Some server has a small file upload limit in the php.ini configuration. This causes, that you can not upload the installer to the server by the Joomla installer. In this case try out the alternative installation methods or try to increase the limit in the php.ini

upload_max_filesize = 10M
post_max_size = 10M
Some folders not writeable

This happens usually if FTP and PHP are running by different owners on the Linux server and you uploaded your site by FTP, but PHP do not have right to write into the directories. We suggest in this case to configure the FTP mode in Administration → System → Global configuration → Server → FTP Settings.
