  • Resolved reddtessa


    Tried updating through my WP update option get this error:

    Downloading update from…

    Unpacking the update…

    Could not copy file. C:/xampp/htdocs/sites/*.php

    Then I tried downloading straight from here rather than upgrading through my WP site… getting this error when unzipping.

    ! C:\Users\Dogg\Downloads\ Cannot create another-wordpress-classifieds-plugin\*.php
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    ! C:\Users\Dogg\Downloads\ Attempting to correct the invalid file name
    ! C:\Users\Dogg\Downloads\ Renaming another-wordpress-classifieds-plugin\*.php to another-wordpress-classifieds-plugin\_.php

    Hi reddtessa,

    Let me ask my developer about that strange file name. I see that in the package, I thought it was some new mechanism to use for WordPress. Seems to work OK for UNIX systems, but apparently not so much for Windows.

    OK, looks like that was a glitch on the upload. Here’s how you can fix it manually until the next update:

    – Delete your current install of the plugin
    – Take the one you manually downloaded, open up the ZIP file
    – Remove the *.php file (don’t remove ALL files!) at the root of the plugin directory
    – Close the ZIP
    – Install your updated ZIP manually

    That should fix it.

    Thanks, before I tried removing it I went ahead and tried another upgrade through my wp admin and it worked so you ironed it out. 🙂

    Glad it’s all worked out. I did delete it from the repo to avoid further issues.
