Support » Fixing WordPress » 2.8.4 zip from WP download corrupted?

  • figaro


    Is it just me or is the current download from the WP download area corrupt? I downloaded it at work today and noticed the wp-config-sample.php was missing the closing php tag. I fixed that, but still had an error on the install. I installed an older copy of the source code from one of my existing sites and did an auto-upgrade and everything upgraded fine.

    I don’t believe so. The lack of closing php tag is deliberate so that white space is not sent out before headers.



    If a Vista machine was used on the unzip, I’ve heard of it not extracting completely…recommend using 7-zip for unzip/extraction in that case.



    @tomontoast: Hummm…I learn something new everyday…never noticed that not being in the default config file.

    @michaelh: Thanks…I normally use 7-zip, but may not have used it that time.

    This is error message is what I get when uploading a .zip plugins to my wp site; any ideas what the issue is here, at my wits end.
    Archive: /home/indigoju/public_html/wp-content/plugins/
    End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
    a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
    latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
    the last disk(s) of this archive.
    unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/indigoju/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ or
    /home/indigoju/public_html/wp-content/plugins/, and cannot find /home/indigoju/public_html/wp-content/plugins/, period.
