Support » Plugin: Simba Plugin Updates Manager » A .zip with this filename already exists. Please use a unique filename.

    I’ve created a plugin entry and uploaded a zip file for v1.0.0
    Now I’m trying to upload new version 1.0.1 and getting this message: “A .zip with this filename already exists. Please use a unique filename.”
    Does not matter if in a top level Upload Zip or in the plugin Manage Zips interface.

    Is it required to delete old one first?

    PS: (maybe it can help) I have this plugin installed on the same server where I have added it to download.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    “A .zip with this filename already exists. Please use a unique filename.

    This means what it says: use a unique filename for the zips you upload. e.g. my-plugin.1.0.1.zip. The zips you upload all have to be stored on disk (unless and until you manually delete them). If they all have the same filename, that is problematic.

    “The plugin must be in the expected format – i.e. it must contain a single directory at the top level, with the name matching the plugin slug”

    I’ve misinterpreted this description as if the archive name should be named as a plugin slug. Sorry 🙂
