View Full Version : Can't get skin-packages uploaded

Hi DA-experts,

I am a DA-reseller that is trying to create my own first DA-skin by following these steps:
1. downloading the enhanced.
2. expanding it with the costume unzipper in mac osx.
3. going in to the folder enhanced/images/ and opening header.gif in photoshop and making a small adjustment and saving it.
4. Next I am zipping the enhanced folder via the terminal by using the following command-line:

tar -czvf enhanced.tar.gz /Users/Username/Desktop/folder/folder/DirectAdmin/skins/enhanced
5. This will output an enhanced.tar.gz in the .../enhanced folder.
6. Next I am uploading enhanced.tar.gz via in to DA.
7. But wait... I get the following message:
Error Installing Skin
The skin package did not install properly. Either there were files missing, or their permissions were incorrectly set

Could somebody point me in the right direction :confused:
Thanks in advance!

My guess you zipp it wrongly you should do the following:

cd /Users/Username/Desktop/folder/folder/DirectAdmin/skins/enhanced
tar -czvf ../enhanced.tar.gz .

If it does not help you you need to contact your hosting company so they check error logs for details.
