It seems that it is not possible to install a sys ext through the Extension manager.

it seems the check fails in class.em_index.php #15203
if (!$EM_CONF['lockType'] || !strcmp($EM_CONF['lockType'],$loc)) {

$EM_CONF['lockType'] => system
$loc => S

I can't reproduce this with the old extension manager. However I can't install as a system or global extension with the new extension manager, so I'll leave this bug open for the new ext mgm.

Why can't you install a system extensions? I have no problems..


Updated by Dmitry Dulepov over 9 years ago

I have a related problem.

When I upload the file, I have only "Local" as the install option.

I enabled System and Global in the Install tool and permissions to typo3/ext and typo3/sysext are set to 0777.

What about removing the Global option at all?
Local should be sufficient.

Removal is easy and could be done for 4.6 also.
