[resolved] Plugin Directory throws 404 on download (7 posts)

    A few days after uploading a new plugin to SVN for the WP Plugin Directory, it still cannot be downloaded. The Download version 0.1 link returns a 404 page instead of the ZIP file and under Other versions > Development version , I get an empty zip file for download.

    The readme is parsed correctly. I ran it through the readme checker to make sure it is OK. No problems there, it seems... Then what can it be?

    Both readme and the one and only plugin PHP file are saved in UTF-8 with Unix/Linux end-of-line. Is that the problem?

    Anybody any idea what can be going wrong on http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-geo-mashup-map/ ?

    Other plugins ( not only mine ;) ) seem to suffer the same: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/mappress-google-maps-for-wordpress.2.19.zip returns a 404... at least for me and for the WP automatic upgrader...

    Something going wrong with the plugin hosting thing?

    You're not alone. The AddToAny plugin is also having the same issue with the latest release:

    Hi micropat, I get the 404 on http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/add-to-any. too but your Development Version link http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/add-to-any.zip does return a full zip file. What happens if you change the Version: . tag in add-to-any.php to Version: (notice the 0 at the start) in both the /trunk/ and that tag/ versions ? If that fixes the 404 (wait half an hour or so) then it might indicate there is something wrong in my plugin files somewhere too... But WHAT...

    It's weird but I notice that sometimes (but very rarely) I get a full zip from my plugins download link, other times an empty zip but most of the time that 404.

  5. It's definitely a known problem with the directory and I think they're working on it:
