Post by apollodriver »

hello dear phpBB-Communiy - good day

i have a freshly installed phpBB 3.3 - now i wanted to add a privacy exteinsion.
Bug i cannot install the plug: david63/privacypolicy with a sftp client

believe it or not : i have done these steps . i have uploaded the ext/david63/privacypolicy with a sftp client,
and then i headed over to the admin-area and tride t+o enable it in the ACP#

but wait: i cannot see the extension - it is invissible

why is this so


see the various links:


i took the extension from here:

viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2464776
GitHub Repository: https://github.com/david63/privacypolicy

and yes: i followed all the steps,

but in the extension overview i can only see only one extension:
CURRENT VERSION OPTIONS ACTIONS

VigLink 1.0.5 Details Disable :: Enabled Extensions

well i have tried out various things - but i cannot see the extension called "privacypolicy" in the admin-overview!!


what do suggest now???

99% of the time when an extension does not appear it is due to an incorrect directory structure.

hello dear David64, hello dear Elias, hi there Lumpi, :D



first of all: many many thanks for the great extension - i really like what i see in the anouncement - i must have this extension!!! ;)
the most interesting thing is this sentence: Upload the unzipped files to [board root]/ext/david63/privacypolicy and enable it in the ACP

what i did is the following

_ i uploaded it to

www.my-domain.com/ext/


by the way: it is named:


php_privacy

so all looks like

www.my-domain.com/ext/php_privacy/privacypolicy-3.3


but belive it or not: nothing is shouwing up in the ACP-Admin area



we have it like so:

www.my-domain.com/ext/php_privacy/privacypolicy-3.3


and in the ext_folder i have (besides this the)


/ext/phpbb/viglink


to sume it up: what makes me wodering

here in the main article to the great extension we can read
viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2464776

installation-steps:

- Download the latest release and unzip it.
- Upload the unzipped files to [board root]/ext/david63/privacypolicy and enable it in the ACP


really _ do i need to create such diretories in the ext/folder - with david63 and so forth"?


love to hear from you
