Your permissions in your server file system may be incorrect, set your store/mods directory to chmod 777. This should be done via your FTP client.

Im getting this problem with all mods too.

I know ftp is working on my host, as I use many ftp scripts. My dtp details are 100% correct. This must be a bug. also force install/uninstall result in a blank page (not blank - there is the style and layout and menu etc..... just no content)

Is there a fix?

ok i've gone into the cPanel and tried to install the frontpage Extensions, and that also has an error for creating the _copy folder, seems that any folder that begins with _ wont be created.

So is there a way to change the automod to just use /edited instead of /_edited?

or does anyone know why _edited wont be created and how to fix it..?

when i ran other mods, it installs everything except the _edited folder, so thats how i came to the conclusion that its something to do with the _ folders

I've never heard of this behavior. You might contact your web host and see if they can explain it. I'm very interested.

ok have spoken to my hosting company, seems that the _ folders are system folders, and therefore the server blocks those from being created, when asking around, seems theres quite a few other servers that are doing this..

I no longer think it is my webhost that is blocking it. I just can't do installs that way anymore. I did one when i first installed it and it worked great, everyone I do since tells me that _edited cannot be created.
Thanks in advance for a reply.

Do you upload the unzipped MOD directory or use AutoMODs upload feature?

Make sure AutoMOD has write permissions to the MOD directory (store/mods/MOD-name/.

I have contacted your host, but have not received any answer yet.

AutoMOD includes language files for English (en). You need to copy the included language files to your /language/en_us/ directory to.
