    Hi,

    I'm trying to make some style changes to the "Light" template. I downloaded the files, customised and am trying to re-upload to test the look but upon uploading the tar.gz file it throws "The style tarball is invalid" error and doesn't upload.

    I'm compressing the directory directly with macOS terminal, is there something I'm doing wrong here?

    Thanks @cPanelLauren

    EDIT: Managed to sort it out, but I'm now having issues with Installatron (3rd party I installed) the icons, they won't show on the style I've uploaded. Why is this? They show on every other theme I have?

    Anybody at all?

    You may have found a fixable bug here. Our intent by providing those tarballs for download is so that you can quickly change what you need to change and re-upload it. If that's breaking down, it's a bug!

    Hi @inteldigital

    How'd you sort out the "invalid tarball" issue? I think the details would be helpful. As far as installatron, I'm not sure, are you getting any specific errors in the cPanel error log? Also, have you tried reinstalling it after the theme was in place?


    Thanks!

    Hi @cPanelLauren thanks for getting back to me.

    The invalid tarball issue was my own fault. I hadn't cd into the desktop (where the folder containing the files was) and as I was dropping the full path from desktop to terminal it was nesting the theme folder into other folders /hdd/user/path/Desktop example it was creating a folder for each step and once I executed tar from the Desktop it uploaded just fine.

    I haven't tried reinstalling Installatron, I tried repairing it and it didn't help, but I'm thinking reinstalling is a bit too far? Am I supposed to reinstall it every time I make some amendments to to the theme during the development process?

    Hi Ben/ @inteldigital

    I'm glad the invalid tarball error was resolved thanks for letting us know what the situation was.

    Not necessarily, I just suggested it because you were having issues with it.
