Quick Fix: Extensions Installer issue when FTP support disabled
The issue: Could not connect as ........
If you get an error below saying "Could not connect as ......" while uploading your zipped extensions via the Extension Installer, you probably have the FTP support disabled from your hosting.
This tiny ocmod extension code fixes this.
This is a mod for the new OCMOD modification system in OpenCart 2.0. It allows you to install zipped extensions without the need for FTP support on your server.
How to apply this fix?
You need to download and unzip this mod first. Then, to install this mod go to your OpenCart admin panel > Extensions > Extension Installer. Click the Upload button and select the .xml file that you previously unzipped. You should get a green message saying: "Success: You have installed your extension!”. Now navigate to Extensions > Modifications and click on the Refresh button at the top right corner of the screen. This is it.
Disclaimer: This is an end-user fix released for free by iSense for OpenCart 2.x, and will be maintained until it gets addressed in OpenCart
