When I re-install them one by one normally they all work though. So it's definitely an issue with this component.
All in all, doesn't work. Checked forums for support, nothing on the issue, nor in the documentation.
But we have irregular unzip issues with it and 500 internal errors (maybe since joomla update?)
Really want this to work :(
As I stated in the Multi Install forum (http://forgetso.com/index.php?option=com_agora&task=topic&id=6&Itemid=3&p=3), the error you are seeing could be to do with folder permissions.
I pointed you in the direction of some helpful material on this subject matter, yet you have not responded with any indication as to whether you read it or not.
I also offered to take a look at your site but you didn't email your details.
The developers forum has few users but that is not an issue, the issue is that questions do not appear to be answered. Due to the lack of support and lack of function I have removed this component from my test site.
Additionally, developers website claims an improved versions which is not available for download.
Very disappointing, a component which is designed to save time acutally wasted three hours.
The mail function had stopped working on my site, therefore, I was not notified of your forum comments. I have since updated the component and fixed the issue you were experiencing.
With this component, I didn't even have to unzip the modules and plugins from the jomsocial package...it updated all 15 modules and all 27 plugins in less than 30 seconds!
Now my head is spinning with ideas on updating 24 other joomla sites with standard module/plugin updates. I can create one upload "package" and update all my clients' sites.
This is a great utility. I'm surprised its not in the base Joomla system.
If you could remote install via http:// like in the traditional installer, that would be great add-on!
Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad that you decided to share how you use Multi Install and I am sure that Jomsocial users will find your comment helpful.
I have taken on board your suggestion and have since added the option to install from a URL to version 1.0.2.
