Server does not allow remote update 9 years, 9 months ago #6788

I am using Mobile Joomla on all my customers sites. I recently added a new Linux server and have one Joomla 1.7.X site on this server with Mobile Joomla. When I try to perform an update, I get an error message telling me that I must manually update.

My php.ini file has upload_max_file at 50m and Fopen is set "on" for URL uploads. Rebooted Apache just to make sure and I am getting the same error message.

I also have the JCE wysiwyg editor installed and remote updates work fine. In fact, I just performed an update today of JCE.

Does anyone have any ideas concerning why this is not working on this new server? I would hate to have to do manual updates on all site on this new server.

Thank You
Bob Rynkiewicz

MJ update uses default Joomla's methods to download, unpack and install extension:
JInstallerHelper::downloadPackage - download package to joomla's tmp directory
JInstallerHelper::unpack - unpack package inside tmp directory
JInstaller::install - install unpacked extension

So, check permissions for tmp directory and that allow_url_fopen directive is enabled.

Thank You for your assistance.

I have rechecked the allow_url_Fopen setting and it is "On" (enabled)

The permission looked just fine but just to make sure I changed the "/tmp" directory to "777" and it still did not work.

Also, I am not using FTP in the Joomla CMS configuration.

Since the JCE update and Joomla Core updates work on this site, I am mystified by why Mobile Joomla update is not working. Are there any Apache plugins that perhaps I have not installed on this new server that might be used by Mobile Joomla in this update . Such as JSON, etc....?

Thank You

I am having the same problem on a Free BSD server.
The other Linux host servers I am using
do not create any problems with the install. 

If anyone on core team, or otherwise, has a solution
to this, it would be greatly appreciated.
