Having troubles? Please take a look at the following requirements. If these don’t fix your issue, feel free to contact us.

  • Do not use numbers (0-9) in the beginning of the GGPKG’s file name.

  • Make sure the ZIP extension for PHP is installed on your server. In most cases, you will get an error message stating it is missing if it is not installed. You will then need to contact your host provider and ask them to install it for you.

  • Do not use special characters (á, $, ^, etc.) in the package filename.

  • Do not use spaces in the package filename.
