In this quick article, I will give a recommendation when you name or rename a folder inside the mod folder in Elgg 1.8
The Mod folder in Elgg is where you upload plugins or themes for Elgg. I was developing a plugin for Elgg when I had to rename a folder, for testing purposes. I typed just numbers like I regularly do in my desktop computer. For my surprise, it seems like Elgg doesn’t like folders to be named only with numbers.
I didn’t realized that until I saw this screen while I tried to access the Plugins page inside the Administration Dashboard:
Apparently, if you name any folder inside the Mod folder with just number i.e “75158” it will cause you a fatal error. So if you are going to name, rename or upload a folder, make sure it has letters and numbers, not just numbers.
This now concludes Warning: Naming Folders Inside the Mod Folder in Elgg 1.8
