Problem :This problem is shown when we upload any Joomla extensions like Modules, Component, Templates & Plugins.The problem is :

JFolder::create: Could not create directory

Warning! Failed to move file. 

and it looks like the below image :

This error occurs when you move from one host to another host. It is because when we move a Joomla site from one server to another server, the log & tmp functions present in the configuration.php file contains the directory path where you had previously installed Joomla i.e. on the old server.

Solution : The solution is so easy.Just follow the below ways :

1. Goto your Hosting panel >> File Manager >> Select your Domain/Sub-Domain and then open the configuration.php file.

2. Find var $log_path, it will contain the Directory path of your Old Server. Just replace the whole line with the code var $log_path = './logs';

3. Find var $tmp_path, it will also have the Directory path of your Old Server. Replace the whole line with the code var $tmp_path = './tmp';

That’s it! Your problem will be solved with this small tweak in the code.Make sure that you properly copy paste the code. 🙂
