File Transfer Failed, Reason: Cannot Remove File

Contents

NOTE: A very similar problem can be caused by a host configuration error on your file permissions and/or ownership. Thanks, Log in or register to post comments =-= VM commented March 27, 2013 at 3:38am install a local environment and patch on your own machine. A patch with debug info sounds like a good idea, in any case. I insist on this feature because Drupal 7 release has a focus on user experience, accesibility and usability of the system to make it easier to use.http://www.linuxforu.com/2011/12/dries-buytaert-interview-drupal-8-busin...http://www.centernetworks.com/interview-drupal-founder-dries-buytaerthttp://devworks.thinkdigit.com/Features/Interview-Dries-Buytaert--Creato... http://outwardsound.com/cannot-create/cannot-create-a-file-when-that-file-already-exists-c.html

So it looks like nothing more than some modules are zipped incorrectly, so I just installed manually through FTP and it worked fine and most other modules will install so it Note that the PHP bug is scheduled to be fixed as of PHP 5.3.23, so Drupal should be fixed accordingly or users will experience the same issue with latest PHP 5.3 Thanks. This is in particular a problem when users can manipulate their setup, but cannot change ownership of files, and especially critical when performing backup, migration, or other maintenance tasks.

Log in or register to post comments =-= VM commented January 28, 2013 at 6:28pm does it work for any modules not stored in the profiles/folder?

I just deleted some of the sites/all/modules folders I was having issues with, downloaded from Drupal the older versions of the modules again, uploaded them to sites/all/modules (via Coda), then re-ran The update manager action is executed via your webserver (httpd, nginx,...) user.

After also running cron, everything worked fine … Thank you very much! Similar to what was described in #27 above. And why select a location that is generally created manually prior to installation to check its ownership against files actually created by the web server user. I'd recommend to use chown user:www-data or chown user:apache when you're using something like webmin/virtualmin in order to make your permissions equal sorted out.

Drupal 8 File Transfer Failed, Reason: Cannot Create Directory

It seems that for the fast update method to work, you need to have the ftp user with which you login to be the owner of the modules' files and directories File Transfer Failed, Reason: Cannot Remove File I can compare any settings if I can just get some guidance on where to look, OS, FTP, Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc. I increased the Disk Quota Space for the domain and - vola! - success. ~dc Log in or register to post comments Comment #82 hip CreditAttribution: hip commented July 21, 2013

It seems like my grief must be coming from file permissions created somewhere in that upload. On Drupal Admin area, I have change temp directory so I could see uploaded file owner and permission...

I tried to install a module fresh but still got the same error. I then used the same ftp user to update and it worked. Log in or register to post comments Comment #2 svouthi CreditAttribution: svouthi commented August 30, 2013 at 3:59pm I hadn't considered it since I have used update manager successfully for updates navigate here Used backup and migrate to bring across the data.

The workaround is to manually download and install the modules instead of using the update manager. I just don't understand why it's done in such way. Sanders, Danny Crossley, it looks like you also use Linux with LAMP, don't you?

The owner is my user, "bojan".

Solution: Through Filezilla (or your favourite FTP-client) try and find the connection that works.

See the log below for more information.

In a shared hosting environment where multiple domains install independant D7 instances this means that the first instance of these directories created is assigned the Ownername and GroupOwnerName permissions of the We definitely need to fix it, because that's incorrect. "In practice, marking these kinds of bugs as "version X" means they're forgotten about and never backported to X-1, which is what SOLUTION The default install for D7 assumes: /tmp directory at the web server root (not your site root) will be used for temporary files. Sanders CreditAttribution: Scott M.

The files uploaded have apache owner (not regular site user as owner). Can it be fixed in drupal 7.*? Eventhough Wordpress is using a similar mechanism (someone is bound to have borrowed it in/from Drupal), they do have a configuration option that overrides this. I'm testing the latest HEAD on a Ubuntu server, and I've tried installing Views by pasting the url into the update manager.

D7 was in alpha when I reported this.

As Scott said, the problem isn't critical as you can still upgrade modules by hand.

Switching back PHP 5.3 just for an upgrade does 'solve' it for me though. Your suggestion #77 solved my the problem smoothly!

Not sure where the weak link is. However, in rare circumstances, it can also happen when all the permissions and ownership appear to be correct.
