Block Designer not installed

Permalink
Hello All,

I just purchased Block Designer and assigned the license to my Xamp test site, but when I go to Stacks & Blocks it isn't showing up.

I then go to Extend concrete5 and I see Block Designer along with 2 other addons I grabbed sitting there under the Awaiting Installation heading.

When I click download on either of the 3 addons I get this error msg: An error occurred while downloading the package.

Check the PHP Error logs and see what happened, it's most likely a permissions or timeout issue.

Thanks hutman, where can I find those error logs?

Unfortunately that's not something I can answer, they're somewhere within your server files, not within concrete5

Thanks for your help. Anyone else have any additional suggestions, please?

On my Windows XAMPP, apache errors are in \xampp\apache\logs\error.log. I think php errors go in there as well, unless configured to do otherwise.

I've had bad experiences with firewall settings interfering with c5 marketplace interactions on XAMPP. Try turning your firewall off, or at least allowing all outbound requests through.

Okay I checked the log and this is what I found:

Have you tried creating another fresh concrete5 install and connect to the community and see what happens (with free Add-Ons, just to check if it works or not)?
grfirst replied on at Permalink Reply 1 Attachment
Okay looks like I've found the solution.
locate htdocs folder > right click
click properties > security tab
click the Edit button to change permissions
click Users and tick the box to Allow Full control

Let it run, and I'm now able to install all blocks associated with this site.
grfirst replied on at Permalink Reply
Okay let me just add, that that solution still doesn't allow me to download to my XAMPP installation, but what it does do is allow me to place the add-ons into my packages folder, and install them that way.

Before I ran the permissions edit, I wasn't even able to do that.

I'll continue to look for a solution to this issue. I was able to temporarily associate the block to a new site, download and install there, and it works fine so there's nothing wrong with the block.

Regards,
Greg

You have the cURL extension enabled (not sure if it uses that, but I do think so)?

Thanks,

I just commented out that line in php.ini and still getting the error when attempting to download blocks in my XAMPP project:

An error occurred while downloading the package.
grfirst replied on at Permalink Reply
Forgot to restart Apache, and when I did, now when I associate a block to the project, it doesn't even show in Add Functionality, let alone the ability to download.

I'll continue poking around for a solution, but for now the work around is to manually add the block to the packages folder and install.

I think you need cURL to be enabled, not disabled.

Is your site connected to the concrete5 community?

I went back and enabled curl and my blocks showed up again for download, but still unable to download them.

Yes my site is connected to concrete5 community.
