I have a working copy of magento locally. I'm trying to install extension directly to that system. But it gives "no file was uploaded" error. Has anyone encountered similar issue? I have not faced this problem when I install same file online.
I had the same issue and managed to fix it by commenting out the rewrite instructions in my main
.htaccess file in Magento's root folder. Don't forget to add those instructions back after you finished installing your module.
I suggest you keep a
.htaccess.magento-connect file for when you want to use Magento Connect along with your regular
.htaccess file, and switch between the two.
