PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) on versions 2.9.2? (4 posts)

    I thought that this was a problem only for version 2.8 but I just ran into it... I installed my wordpress manually and everything works, but when I try to load .zip theme files this is the message I get:

    Incompatible archive PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Invalid archive structure

    I tried overwriting http.php with other versions but it didn't help, I've changed it back to the original now.

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    For anyone experiencing similar problems, I've managed to install the themes manually by uploading to wp-content/themes/

    I am also seeing this on a new installation of 2.9.2. It worked flawlessly for a week or two and now no new plugins can be installed and no plugins that have updates can be upgraded.

    Me too. Really frustrating - I'm sick and tired of seeing search results for this that only say one of two things:

    1) Overwrite http.php! I did, and nothing happened
    2) You've run out of space! No I haven't, it's a clean new install on a new server. And it's happening on my other sites, too.

    And I can't upgrade to 3.0 because some of the plugins that are crucial to the site working aren't compatible with 3.0 yet.

    I can upgrade manually, but it's really inefficient and time-consuming - especially with so many sites, so many different plugins, and so many updates to each plugin.
