Failed to move uploaded file to /media directory."

The problem is most likely the configuration of your PHP server. Many PHP servers are installed by default to allow a single file upload to not exceed 2MB, and some plug-ins are larger than this.

You may be able to control this by adding the following lines to your .htaccess file in the root directory of your domain. Note that the values you enter here may be restricted by the PHP server limits. If you still have problems, contact your host's tech support.

php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
php_value post_max_size 20M

Note that if you increase the maximum file upload size, you may also have to increase the default upload timeout:

php_value max_input_time 120
php_value max_execution_time 120

hi !

sorry for my poor english.

I have the same problem on joomla 1.0.15 with cb1.1. all my local directory are on 777, my php values for upload are on 20M
So i don't understand why this error.

But, you can pass it by uploading you plugin in \components\com_comprofiler\plugin\ directory (unzip files first) and do an install from directory.

I passed the installation of the french language plugin.

I have this problem as well. I did some research and it seems some hosts fails to create a directory when the trailing slash is given. I was not able to install anything in the admin, but found a hack for the joomla core installer component. That sovled my issue with all other installs, not CB though. It seems like CB is using it's own installer and maybe it'll need a fix too? The fix I found is here: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,130060.msg638844.html

Anyone got a suggestion for the CB-installer?

Well, it seems I solved it myself when I finally found the plugin-installer functions :)
Just apply the fix from the link in my previous post to [code:1]administrator/components/com_comprofiler/library/cb/cb.installer.php (row 667)[/code:1]
That did the trick for me :)
