No configuration file found and no installation code available. Exiting...

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I have tried 3 times to install this template using the Quickstart package and on each occasion finishe up with the following message 'No configuration file found and no installation code available. Exiting...' when trying to acces the front end (and the admin access). I looked through your Forum but oly found one reference, advising to check the php configuration file for permissions. Could you please advise if this is a known issue with this template and if so pleae give more information/advice on how to resolve it...ie if changing the permission level of this file is enough toresolve it, where to find the php.config file via FTP etc. I have never had any issues with any of your Quickstart pacjkages previously With kind regards, Steve.

Hi Steve,
probably Joomla cannot create a configuration.php as a last step of installation.

Let we try alternative solution, I make a full backup (Akeeba Backup) of my QS installation and I will send you, okay.
And you will try to install step by step...

Many thanks for this. Do I still need to create a new database?

Probably not.
I used custom name for database prefix

Paul, many thanks for your message. Still having serious problems, and have experienced same issue with Floox and Lightbox Quickstart packages. The method I always use is to download the Quickstart package, upload it via Filezilla (set to 'binary' transfers) to new directory. Unzip package in folder in Webspace Explorer (at my host, 1&1). At this point with all three I'm getting some errors flashing up as the files unzip. I then go through the usual install process ...mydomain/installation...and get through to the end (as far as Remove Installation Files etc). It's at this point when I try to go to the front end or login to the admin that I get the 'No configuration file found and no installation code available. Exiting...'' error. Have tried today with my original download of the 'Cuisine' quickstart package with absolutely no problems. Any help woud be greatly appreciated. With kind regards, Steve.

Maybe because of this tool you gets those errors.

Why don't you make a screenshot with errors for us ... without we are all blind.
Maybe create a short clip and put on youtube like some users does.

Have you tried to install Joomla 3.7.4 manually step by step ! Try !

Beside to be honest 1&1 (owned by United Internet) - is weak hosting, in my country after ~5 years gone away, nobody wanted it, less than 1% market share.

Paul, many thanks for your message. Still having problems. Before this I have never had any probelms at all uploading/unzipping JS templates to 1&1 hosting. Just cannot understand it. Have tried an older (and smaller file size) template this morning (One Clip). Still had problems unzipping in Webspace Explorer. Just feel sad after upgrading to Developer licence last week, I seem to have had problems. I know this is not yours (or Joomshaper's) fault at all...just very frustrating at this end. Have looked into Filezilla settings...all appear ok, nothing has changed at the hosting end...all very strange really and deperate to use Floox, Strings and Lightbox on new customer sites.

5 days ago I gave you tip how to solve unzipping problems.

So many people so far created websites on 3 mentioned QuickStart - so it's really hard me believe this our fault/issue.
configuration.php is created by Joomla installer not by us.
The only change that we made (always does) was replace .sql file with demo data.

Paul Frankowski - Staff

Developer or Standard license ... this same packages. So no differences, opss.

OR
use 2nd hosting services in trial period : smarthost.eu, siteground.com, Rochen.com
- all those love & support Joomla CMS.
Sometimes this kind of test/experiment, can be a game changer.

OR
Install QuickStart on localhost (Xampp, WAMP, MAMP) play ... and then copy site to 1&1 server,
so configuration.php will be there.
