WordPress Diary How to build and secure your site.

ERROR! Failed in extracting zip file

May 17

Everything went well until I uploaded the finished site to my ISP.

ERROR! Failed in extracting zip file
  • I ran installer.php and all tests passed.
  • When it started to install, I got an error indicating that my zip file may be corrupt.
  • I could unzip it locally just fine.
  • I deleted and re-uploaded it again — same problem.
  • The support site for Duplicator had no reference for this type of error.

What finally worked?

  • Rather than using CoffeeCup DirectFTP (v6.9 Build 2014 Full), I logged into CPanel and used File Manager to upload the file.
  • This time everything worked. Not sure why the file was corrupt via FTP but this is just in case anyone else has this issue, try an alternate upload method.

WP Simulator

Hi Guys.

Just thought I should give you the heads up on a newly released tool that will help you transform the way you build, test, & repair WordPress sites faster than otherwise possible. If like me you find WordPress development slow then you should take a look at this.

Matt Garrett, a pro blogger of some 10 years & his techies have found an easy way to run a rapid test version of WordPress on any PC or MAC. The traditional way of doing this involves editing complex server files & following multi-step install procedures…

Matt doesn’t release many products, the last 3 have all been top sellers – I have no doubt this one will be too.

It’s one of those products that won’t immediately put dollars in your pocket but its one you’ll wish you knew about years earlier as it makes life a lot easier…

Matt’s just released it on a “dime sale” which means the price is low for all early birds but will gradually go up. There’s also 3 Ipad Mini’s up for grabs for early customers in the product launch competition.

After two days of watching training videos, this site exists!

I was so impressed with the quality of Matt’s training videos, I thought it only fitting to make my first site using his info with links for others to hopefully benefit as much as I have.

I started this site after purchasing WP Simulator.

I was so impressed with Matt’s training videos that I thought my first site should be based on his tutorials and wanted to support others who desire to either learn or wish to improve their web design skills. I also went on to purchase more of his products and have been very pleased with all of them.

I intend to provide valuable updates to help others improve their own skills and knowledge as well as pitfalls to avoid, warnings concerning security risks and how to protect their sites and how to quickly recover a site when disaster strikes.
