I get an error message on click import addon

Hi from Cape Town,

Thanks for a great video tutorial on themes!

I'm followng the tutorial, and wish to use the reset theme. I get the error message below when I click import addon :

Cannot connect to the server in the URL, . (version: 4.3.2, PHP version: 5.3.1, URL: /ocportal/adminzone/index.php?page=admin_addons&type=addon_i

I'm using xampp. Does any one know what I'm doing wrong ?

Thanks, Nick

Maybe you're behind a proxy server or something like that. I'd suggest grabbing the tar off of our site and uploading it via the addons system instead.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thank you for your reply Chris. It's working now !

Got past the problem by connecting directly to the internet, instead of via office network connection sharing.

Looking forward to playing with ocportal tonight.
