5.6.3.3 Concrete error

Permalink
I am seeing the following error.

Warning - failed to load package with pkgHandle 'theme_slate_packed.zip'. Could not find package controller file: '/var/www/html/website_com/packages/theme_slate_packed.zip/controller.php'

Is the solution to remove the zipped file from the directory so it doesn't try to access controller.php?

Thanks,

You need to unzip the package and place the unzipped package into your packages folder.
I am assuming you have just placed the zipped up package into your packages folder?

I already have an unzipped package of the theme in packages directory.

I am not familiar with the Slate Theme.
Is it a Package that goes in the Packages folder, or is it just a Theme that goes into the themes folder?

It's is a file you unzip in your packages directory that allows you to install the slate theme onto your site once you unzip the file and do the following.

You do so by going to "Add functionality" on the dashboard and selecting the package from the list.

Okay, Its a package..
If you have successfully installed it, why not just delete the zipped copy?
OR
Have you tried to install the zipped package as a separate entity?

i didnt intially install the package, therefore i wanted to make sure it wouldn't break the site before removing it or if there was another solution.

Thanks,

If you don't see a listing for the zipped package in the Add Functionality page, then yes delete the zip, If you do see a listing for the zipped package, use the 'Uninstall' function first so that you don't break your database.
Make a backup of your database from your servers myPhpAdmin section first, this is very important so don't skip this step...

First off, you misfiled this under the "5.7 Discussion" forum :(

After you have unzipped the package into the packages directory you still need to delete or move the .zip file somewhere outside the packages directory.

Unfortunately this long-standing bug in 5.6 incorrectly looks at *any* file there and tries to find it's controller.php (it should only be looking at directories of course).

This has been solved by removing the zipped file from the directory.

Thanks for your help.
