    I am trying to upload the .zip to my server (Namecheap) cPanel and I get this error: "The file you uploaded, vendor.zip, contains a virus so the upload was canceled: {HEX}php.exe.globals.411.UNOFFICIAL FOUND" Which file could this be...
    • I received an email from my host about this. They are showing that the "virus" is located in  /home/*******/villagers.life/vendor/elgg/elgg/.scripts/check_global_requirements.php

      However ".scripts" is not in the vendor/elgg/elgg/ directory as I am checking it now. I originally tried to upload the Elgg zip and got the error and then I zipped the vendor and mods folders individually to narrow down where the so called virus was located.

      Can anybody here help me? I want to get this installed but this is my dilemma.

      Thanks

      The last comment of the above mentioned discussion state:

      If you install Elgg from zip and you don't intend to participate in Elgg core development you can drop the whole hidden vendor/elgg/elgg/.scripts/ directory and your Elgg installation should run perfectly fine.

    I just installed Elgg using Softaculous but it is only version 1.12.17. I don't know why it's not current. I clicked on the update in my admin panel and it is saying I have the most current version but how do I tell? Do I need to ftp the...
    • Cool. However when I tried to install the latest version, it got right to the end and gave me an error saying "Error in uploading requirements checker" I don't know what that meant. I have installed scripts simply by uploading the entire zip and extracting it into my directory. I did that too and my server said the Elgg folder had a virus and stopped the transfer. I know it doesn't and I don't know what would trigger that.

      I just hate ftp because it takes forever and sometimes files don't get transferred and I have to end up going through each file to see wheat is missing which ends up taking hours. But I have no choice at this time so I'm ftpeeing the files now and because Elgg with it's plugins solve my requirements in a social network even the paid ones.

      Thanks

    • It seems that the file vendor/elgg/elgg/.scripts/check_global_requirements.php causes the wrong virus warning. You could unzip the release zip, remove this file and re-zip. If you don't intent to use composer (alternative install method) you wouldn't need this file.

    • Did you ever get elgg updated, I'm about to give up as I just encountered a horrible tech and I'm not the most inept person when it comes to programs, coding, i have been reading and plugging away for about 4 months and I just come up with more question lol
