I have a Magento 220.127.116.11 and I'm trying to install custom module by magento connect with .zip format but I've received a few errors:
CONNECT ERROR: Package file is invalid
Invalid package name, allowed: [a-zA-Z0-9_+] chars
Invalid version, should be like: x.x.x
Invalid date, should be YYYY-DD-MM
Invalid channel URL
Empty authors section
Empty package contents section
When I'm using tgz format there is no errors and module installed succesfully. How to solve the issue and install module using zip format?
Go to Solution.
Magento 1 does not allow the .zip format and you need to create .tgz file
To create .tgz file, follow https://docs.magento.com/marketplace/user_guide/sellers/packaging-v1x-extensions.html
Hope it helps.
