This question about Using an extension: Answered

Errors encountered during package installation. The Extension may not be usable. foswiki(1.1.2)

I am facing the below issue while installing few plugins. These plugins are in zip format, but from the configure page it is looking for .tgz format

Error Message:

Download failure
I can't download http://foswiki.org/pub/Extensions/FullCalendarPlugin/FullCalendarPlugin.tgz because of the following error:
Not Found


The FullCalendarplugin is available in .zip format, and it was working from Foswiki 1.1.1.

I have faced the same issue for Hijaxplugin as well.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Thanks,

Jain Jacob


I already added a task for this. See Tasks.Item10047 FullCalendarPlugin Issue and Tasks.Item10046 HijaxPlugin Issue

Actually both of these issues are due to a bug in Foswiki::Configure::Package.  It's supposed to fail over to the .zip file if the .tgz file is not found.  It's a simple fix that unfortunately revealed a bug in Archive::Zip.  So the extract code also needs to be modified to get around a Taint issue in Archive::Zip
