I installed a blank new installation of Joomla3.3 on my localhost. I am trying to install a plugin, but I keep getting the error message "unable to decompress data".
Joomla attempts to create a install directory in the Joomla's
tmp folder what seems to fail. At least I cant see the folder Joomla tried to use what would explain the failed decompression.
Now I did
sudo chmod 777 on the
tmp folder, but to my surprise that did not solve my problem. Joomla still seems to be unable to create a folder in its tmp directory.
I also checked the server-settings, the tmp folder entry points to the correct folder where everyone (my user, but also
everyone) has full r/w privileges.
I am using XAMPP(MySql, Apache) and OSX (Mavericks). Anyone any idea where my permission problem comes from or how to fix it?
