Hello all,

I have a problem, that I want to import previously saved Layouts.

Get the following message:
Error, Cannot store the layout file in the /_tempzipfiles folder.

I think this has to do with my "Path settings", which are set as follows:
Upload directory path *: /home/public/sites/dbcom-data
Preview files directory name *: _preview_files
Temporary directory name *: _tempzipfiles

Does anyone have any idea what I should change in my "Path settings" ?

did you change the standard path settings in the jDownloads options? Or change any folder name on the server manually?

You shold have here the correct folder names. Compare this with the folders on your server via FTP and correct it.

Please make a Donation for jDownloads and/or write a review on the Joomla! Extensions directory!
I recently removed JDownloads in totaly, first from Joomla, then the remaining items in the database (phpmyadmin).
After that I did a whole new JDownloads installation from within Joomla. I created a folder via FTP, in my case this is the folder "dbcom-data" and it is outside the Joomla environment "/home/public/sites/dbcom-data".

Also change the path settings: Upload directory path * /home/public/sites/dbcom-data

In the path settings there are two left, which are set as shown below:
Preview files directory name * _preview_files
Temporary directory name * _tempzipfiles

Maybe I am forgetting something?

All information is more than welcome so that I can import my old layouts again (xml files).
Think you should Remove jDownloads using Uninstall.  Then Reinstall as normal but do not change the the upload directory path

Your location /home/public/sites/dbcom-data is an external location.

You can set to uplda files from an external location to create downloads

Layouts are internal - you should be able to load the xml files.  From the jD Control Panel choose Layouts.  At the top of the Layouts page there is an Import Button
