someAddon.lua is not allowed for upload

Postby Xaarn » Thu Apr 10, 2008 4:41 am

I am trying my hand at creating my own addon for Roster 2.0 and have hit a snag that I'm sure is something simple. I think I have followed the directions in the Wiki but seem to be missing something. I set the file name for an additional lua file in the constructor for my addon. When I try to upload the file however, it gives me "someAddon.lua is not allowed for upload". Is there some other place I have to grant upload privs for that file? I have set Other LUA Data Level to Officer in the Update Access block on the Roster config and am logged in as Admin.

Can you post the constructor code for your addon from update_hook.php

Here is the first part of the update class showing the class name and the constructor. I thought the update class needed to be named addonnameUpdate.

Code: Select all
class raidtrackerUpdate
{
   // Update messages
   var $messages = '';

   // Addon data object, recieved in constructor
   var $data;

   // LUA upload files accepted. We don't use any.
   var $files = array();

   // Character data cache
   var $chars = array();

    /**
    * Constructor
    *
    * @param array $data
    *    Addon data object
    */
   function raidtrackerUpdate($data)
   {
      $this->data = $data;
      $this->files[] = 'CT_RaidTracker';
   }

I tried changing the class name to the name of the input file and it doesn't even show up on the list of files when you go to the Update Profile screen so I don't think that's it.

The name of the class and the name of the constructor must be the name of the folder the addon is installed to plus 'Update'

Make sure the addon is enabled in the addon manager and that the name is spelled the same as the actual file

You need to specify the filename all lowercase
